I saw this recipe in Bon Appetit several years ago. It’s morphed a bit, as I’ve made it and refined it to our tastes. But the basics never change.
It really is that simple. Sometimes Stud Muffin wants it made with olive oil or adds garlic. It doesn’t really matter. It’s all good.
The meatball recipe is very good, too, but I don’t really follow recipes for meatballs.
I like a mixture of ground beef and ground pork. I add an egg, some breadcrumbs, some parmesan, and some seasonings (salt, pepper, oregano, basil).
Sometimes I cook the meatballs in the sauce. Sometimes we want a meatball with a bit more texture so we’ll roast the balls in the oven for fifteen or twenty minutes. When they have a nice color on the outside, then we pop them into the sauce. We often make lots of meatballs and freeze some to use later.
This is about the most delicious and simple recipe ever.
