Italian Spaghetti With Meatballs

READY IN: 2hrs 45mins




  • Sauce:
  • Pour one can whole tomatoes and one can tomato paste in to a food processor. Add all spices and blend until smooth.
  • Pour this in to a large pot (I use a 10 qt to be sure there's plenty of room).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Meatballs:
  • 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.
