I was planning on making spaghetti and meatballs anyhow this weekend evening. It so happened that the movie "lady and the tramp" was showing on our local Disney station. At 51 years old, I had never seen this particular Disney movie. My hubby was the one that told me about the "spaghetti scene" and that spaghetti and meatballs with bread and a glass of wine was perfect for this movie. I happened to find this recipe (perfect) The ONLY thing I did was use a whole egg. (I have a texture thing about touching raw eggs and seperating them) No one else was around to do this for me, so i just threw in whole egg. Don't think made a big difference. Delicious meal with tossed salad, bread, etc. Oh, Great movie also, don't know how I missed as a kid, as I have seen all the rest of them
