Spaghetti and “Meatballs”
There’s just nothing like spaghetti and meatballs…there are other things which are good….but none of them are spaghetti and meatballs, and that’s just what we had for dinner the other night. Normally I go with balls made completely from scratch (take that as you may) but this time around I went with a shortcut in the form of Gimmelean Ground Beef style. I’d never had it before, and to be honest, I’m not a huge fan, but it does a GREAT job of holding together, which is more then I can say for many of my meatball excursions.
Because I’m well…me, I did jazz up the fake meat a bit. I added a couple tablespoons of tomato paste, a splash of sherry, onion powder, garlic salt, and oregano before re-combining. The balls were then fried up in some olive oil, before being simmered in tomato sauce and added to the noodles. Oh how I wish all the leftovers weren’t gone…
