Spaghetti And Meatballs

I have been making this version of sauce and meatballs for more years than I can remember and can’t for the life of me figure out where it came from, but it’s always been a big hit for all who have tried it………


3/4 cup chopped onions
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (12 oz) tomato paste
1 can (15 oz) whole peeled tomatoes, chopped
1 tbsp parsley
1 teas salt
1 teas sugar
1/2 teas pepper
1/2 teas oregano
1/4 teas basil
2 cups water

1 lb lean ground beef
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1 tbsp parsley
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/8 teas pepper


In a large Dutch oven, combine all the sauce ingredients and bring to a good simmer. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the meatball ingredients and mix well. Roll meat into balls and carefully drop into the simmering sauce; an lady from Italy taught me this version verses frying or baking them off first. Cover pan and continue to simmer for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally and gently, as not to break meatballs. Serve up on your favorite pasta and of course some homemade garlic bread! Enjoy!
