Sometimes the simplest things can be the most difficult and I like it that way. The perfect omelete or the ideal milkshake all fall under this header for me. Anyone can fry up some bacon and slap it between two slices of bread but the one that can create a perfect BLT is the one for me.
Spaghetti and meatballs falls into this realm. Super simple to make and super simple to make bad. I have had so much over cooked pasta and dried out meatballs in my life it is hard to imagine. The one that scares me most is when someone tells me this is their grandmothers recipe, hello it was a depression and ingredients were scarce how good can these meatballs possibly be?
So grab a fork and grab a spoon (if thats how you twirl) and tuck into a bowl of goodness, not how anyones grandmother used to make but how I make it - al dente pasta lightly sprinkled with olive oil and juicy, I mean juicy braised meatballs.
