The Best Spaghetti and Meatballs
If there was ever a dish that can conjure up good memories or make you feel so happy after eating, it is spaghetti and meatballs. Maybe it is all of the movies that show off this dish or knowing it is a dish that is the essence of homemade goodness or perhaps it is that dish that you grew up with where the amazing smells of it cooking all day long emanated from the kitchen. Whatever the reason, this is a dish that can bring smiles!
I have tried many different recipes for meatballs over the years from dropping the meatballs to cook right into the sauce, to browning them in a pan first then adding them to the sauce….. You get the point 🙂 These methods have all been very good but I wanted something that was a little easier and still tasted amazing! I like to cook my meatballs in the oven first then add them to the sauce later. I add olive oil to the meatballs before they cook to help them get that nice crust that pan frying them first gives. This dish is sort of a hybrid of all the ways I have learned to make meatballs and sauce. The flavor is amazing of both the meatballs and the sauce. I even threw in my favorite Italian restaurant’s trick to this one as well 😉
Give these a try and you will be smiling too 🙂
