on top of spaghetti….

On top of spaghetti …. you know the rest, right?

Spaghetti is one of those things I can see a picture of and instantly crave it. I apologize to my carb watchers, but the other night I needed a big bowl of carbs and some red wine.

Maybe it had to do with seeing a picture of Lady and the Tramp… you know that one, where they have the spaghetti?

So, on top of my spaghetti I have a big ol’ meatball. And, I’m going to give you my big ol’ meatball recipe.

How come big ol’ meatball sounds tasty but tuna balls don’t?

on top of spaghetti….big ol’ meatballs
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • optional: 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  1. In a bowl, combine beef and seasonings.
  2. Form into golf ball sized balls.
  3. Cook in a skillet with some olive oil over medium high heat for 6-8 minutes per side.
  4. Don’t try to turn them too soon, or they will fall apart.
  5. Serve hot with pasta and sauce or in a sandwich roll.

Ahh, life’s culinary mysteries….
