So, on Friday we decided to get Lady and the Tramp. The requirement was a good spaghetti and meatballs and overall romantic evening in tribute. We didn't want to go out, we have never had a good experience with the dish at any restaurant. And my husband's grandmothers both have passed on (their recipes with them), so we resorted to the internet.
I have to share this site. We had an absolute blast making this! It took us about 3 hours and 45 minutes but it was soooo very much worth it! We ended up with enough sauce for the two of us to have a gigantic portion of spaghetti on Friday, a tortellini mixture on Saturday, leftover spaghetti tonight and still enough sauce to make Anthony's lasagna if we wanted to.
He offers a printable grocery list (don't forget the pasta though!) and very detailed step by step instructions in the recipe. We put on several of our Opera CD's and drank a basic chianti we bought for the recipe while we cooked the sauce. We can't think of a time we've had more fun dining in at home!
As an added bit of fun, when we were done with the chianti we stuck a white candle in the top to eat by candlelight. Very romantic! LOL
Anyway, peruse the site. You'll probably be surprised.
