Think spaghetti and you think meatballs. Think meatballs and you think spaghetti. And deep red tomato sauce seals this pact oh so deliciously. It’s truly a Holy Trinity of the culinary kind.
Wonderful as it is to eat this dish, it is even more gratifying to cook up this match made in kitchen heaven. Just wrap around a swing skirt, knot a patterned scarf, pretend your name is Maria and repeat the words of the gorgeous Sophia Loren, “Everything I owe, I owe to spaghetti”! Okay, so it is not strictly an Italian dish– spaghetti and meatballs was concocted by Italian immigrants in America – but really, who cares? As you swirl the pasta in fork and bite into a juicy meatball, you can’t help feeling all fantastico.
It’s a magical journey—the way the meat and the herbs come together to morph into into balls of bursting flavour, the aroma of caramelising meat, the bubbling red tomato sauce with a dash of green herbs, the salty drizzle of parmigiano. With such brilliantly simple ingredients and a charming sorriso, you can never go wrong with this tangy classic.
