Spaghetti and Meatballs

That is cheesy

As requested here is the recipe for my meatballs. (Hope you’re reading this Uncle Charlie.)

I usually just cut a couple fresh sausages out of their casings but you can also buy ground pork.

Spaghetti and Meatballs

  • ½ lb ground beef (or veal)
  • ½ lb ground pork
  • 5 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/8 cup red wine
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp fresh oregano
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley
  • Breadcrumbs as needed
  • Salt and pepper

Mix everything together. Add breadcrumbs until the mash turns into a thick loaf. Take meat and pack into balls. The size is up to the cook. Brown each in oil and add to simmering marinara an hour before taking off the stove.
