Slow-Cooker Spaghetti & Meatballs
Total TimePrep: 50 min. Cook: 5 hours
Makes12 servings (about 3-1/2 quarts sauce)
Thinking of making this recipe. What do any of you think of 1/2 grd beef and 1/2 grd lamb for the meatballs?
I made this recipe exactly as stated, and agree that the meatballs could use some sausage. They were really dry. I probably wouldn't make this again.
John ... You an insufferable rude rube and stooge. Take your nasty attitude and asinine persona elsewhere.
Folks, the recipe is merely the writers favorite recipe. Everyone has different tastes. Just because one person likes a recipe does not mean the next person will enjoy it. There is is no reason to verbally assault someone because It’s different from your recipe. These days it seems to have become acceptable in tear into fellow posters because it differs from your grandmother’s. Get a grip sir, and enjoy your recipe and the rest of us will enjoy our own. There are no monetary awards given so relax, go cook up a pot of your sauce and take to one of the many homeless shelters where people will love your grandmother’s pasta.
After reading some of the reviews, I agree with Rus. I'm 73 and my family owned and operated a successful restaurant for over 30 years. There is nothing wrong with FINELY chopped onions in meatballs. I will say that green peppers in the sauce is somewhat unusual, but not unheard of. FYI the spaghetti noodle was first invented in China, not Italy.
I cannot give an honest review at the moment based on these meatballs but one thing i will say... This goes out to some people...(ahem)...JOHN, didnt your mom tell u if u have NOTHING nice to say, then keep your big fat mouth shut!! This is what irks me with people today. You can have an opinion and still be polite if u disagree. Why does this world seem to think its cool to be nasty to fellow human beings. Do u even take the time to think how you"d like it if someone did that to you. SHAME ON YOU!!! You deserve a dressing down. I think your review of her meatballs is BS!! How you like them meatballs!! Ha!!!
I'm Italian and learned from my Grandmother many years ago , how to make true Italian meatballs and spaghetti sauce. She came here from Naples in 1915. I'm in my 80's and I'm a good cook.The above recipe is not authentic. It's not real Italian. For example: never put onions in M/B's and never put bell pepper in spaghetti sauce. The above recipe is not a true Italian recipe. It's B/S.
apologize-just reading recipe not inclined to make, reads to me like very little flavor. 1t of 3 herbs for all that sauce, nope. no milk to soak into 1c bread crumbs w-only liquid being 2 eggs (that are there primarily for binding) translates to a dry meatball which > I made from highly praised recipe I found online last week that was worst by far meatball I ever made.
Served my family at Xmas. Added ground pork and had this available for sandwhiches. Huge hit.
