Classic Spaghetti and Meatballs
When I came across this Spaghetti and Meatball recipe posted on Saveur's facebook page yesterday, I literally dropped what I was doing and ran to the store!
First stop was a specialty Italian Market to pick up fresh spaghetti and bread...then to Whole Foods for the trio of ground meats and remaining ingredients...
It was exactly the type of dinner I was in the mood for...something hot, something comforting and something the whole family surely would love!
It was ...a perfect evening. :)
~ I only added 1 egg to my meatball mixture by mistake (instead of the 3 the recipe calls for). These meatballs were SO delicious, I'm not sure I would add the 3 next time..one worked perfectly!
~ I added the sugar but not sure it was necessary ...think I might halve it next time but it's personal preference - either way TOTALLY AMAZING!
~ Just be sure NOT to rinse your pasta after you drain it...rather place the hot spaghetti in a bowl and immediately spoon a bit of your delicious sauce over the top and lightly toss with kitchen tongs. This will coat the pasta and allow some of the sauce's flavor to seep right into the spaghetti!
