This is a spaghetti recipe for those who crave something heartier than just noodles and a runny sauce. It has been in my family for many generations, and is the best Italian spaghetti I've ever tried. However, this is not a recipe for any day, it does take huge amounts of time, so I suggest making it on a special occasion, or a nice romantic meal. You will need a large pan or stock pot to cook this recipe. Also, it is best to "half cook" the sausage and meatballs before actually adding them to the sauce, because if you do not, they will actually disintegrate and you'll be left with a spaghetti soup :P I've posted this as a 3-4 servings, if your using it as a main course and adding garlic bread and salad, you could easily get 5 servings, maybe more.
