So I grew up with homemade spaghetti nearly every Saturday. It was good. I have always made ok Spagetti myself. But it was just ok.
Until tonight. It was really good because I did it differently.
2lbs lean ground beef
3/4 cup bread crumbs
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Mix and form into two inch balls
In food processor, finely chop 1 red pepper, 2 cloves garlic, 1 large onion, 5 large mushrooms
Sauté in 1/8 cup olive oil.
Pour in 1 cup white wine and two tablespoons balsamic vinegar.
Sauté five minutes.
Add I can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce. I used Hunts thick and rich.
Two teaspoons each: Italian seasoning, basil, oregano
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
Bring to a boil. Stirring. Take the meatballs and put into boiling sauce, turn heat down , and cover til meatballs and thoroughly cooked. Basically I boiled the meatballs in the sauce and it made a nice thick sauce that stuck well to the noodles.
