Spaghetti and meatballs is Sundays at my Nana’s house. It’s family. It’s memories. As you can tell, it evokes a lot in me! She would grind her own meat to make the meatballs and painstakingly cook all day before we would come. My version this week was a pared down, simpler version of her magic that was put together quickly and left to cook for a few hours instead of working all day! I made the meatballs first.
The meatballs were so tender from cooking in the sauce for hours, and they also flavored the sauce so much. It was a beautiful symbiotic relationship! One bite and I was back in my Nana’s house. It made me miss her a whole lot. I hope you all enjoy this family classic! xoxo
