Spaghetti and Meatballs

Dear Jack,

Right now you have three favourite foods that you inhale whenever we put it in front of you. Spaghetti and meatballs, cheeseburgers and pancakes. This is the recipe for my famous spaghetti. Incase you ever want to make it for your wife. Or kids. Or just because you want to remember laughing at the dinner table when you slurp your spaghetti and it goes all over your face.

Spaghetti and Meatballs

box of spaghettini

2 cans of Hunt’s garlic tomato sauce

2 tbsp + of dried oregano

1 tbsp + of dried basil

salt and pepper

PC lean meatballs

2 shallots

2 garlic cloves

 

1- Empty cans of tomato sauce in large pot. Put the element on at medium-low. Add your spices. About 1 tsp of salt. Drop in your meatballs. Let heat up for about half an hour.

2- Peel and slice up your shallots and garlic. Turn burner on to medium and in non-stick pan (or a bit of oil in a stick pan), let heat up then add garlic and onions. Cook, stirring about 5 minutes until translucent and just a bit browney. When done, add to sauce and stir.

3 – Cook spaghettini according to package.

4- Drain spaghettini and add a bit of olive oil to prevent it from sticking. Drop into sauce and stir.

5- Serve.

When in doubt, add more oregano. It’s marvelous.

If you want to make your own meatballs. You’ll need medium ground beef (lean is disgusting), wheat bran and oregano. About 1 tbsp +. Mix it all together until thick. Roll into little meatballs. Cook in oven at 375F on parchment paper, on a cookie sheet for about ten minutes, then roll them over. Might take half an hour. You want them just a touch crusty.

love,

mom
