    Kristi Waterworth's Note:

    I got this from Recipe Exchange back in the Dinosaur Age. According to the author, the original recipe came with her grandmother from Italy in 1920. I have been working with it for years and have, of course, tweaked a good deal. This is an awesome sauce. I usually make a batch early in the year, we eat it for a few days and I freeze the remainder (without the meatballs) and just make more meatballs later and add to the defrosted sauce (simmer for a good while to cook the meat). The meatballs are really versitile and the main reason we love this recipe. They are great on sandwiches or just by themselves with a little sauce and parm.

    Sauce

    Meatballs

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sauce:.
    2. 2
      Pour one can whole tomatoes and one can tomato paste in to a food processor. Add all spices and blend until smooth.
    3. 3
      Pour this in to a large pot (I use a 10 qt to be sure there's plenty of room).
    4. 4
      Process remaining tomatoes and paste until smooth and add to pot. Add somewhere between 6 and 10 cups of water until the sauce has a loose, but not watery, consistancy. This will be the key to your sauce's thickness later.
    5. 5
      Bring sauce to a boil and then simmer (the longer the better, but at least 2 hours). Once your pot is simmering, drop in your raw meatballs, one at a time and gently. Stir regularly, always from the bottom.
    6. 6
      Meatballs:.
    7. 7
      Mix all ingredients together and form in to small balls, no bigger than a golf ball. Drop in sauce gently after it has started its simmer.

      The sauce is a great basic spaghetti sauce. Made it in the crock pot to simmer longer for full flavors blending. When the sauce was up to full simmer(I thought), I dropped the meatballs in...oooppps, they fell apart. So, I just scrambled them into into the sauce. Still delicious! Made for the Crock pot event in Cooking Photos.
