Emeril’s Spaghetti and Meatballs

First I have to say, this may be the best sauce I’ve ever tasted! (When followed exactly, anyway!) I’ve changed it around and modified it at times, but it is too great when done by the recipe for me to say modifying it much is the best. LOL.

I’m not sure if it would be illegal for me to re-post the recipe, so I’m just going to link to it. I found it on Food Network.com and it really is a great recipe! If you want, you can double it and freeze or can the leftover sauce.

It works really well on homemade pizza also, but I do cook it a little longer to thicken it up. If you get distracted and cook it too long, it will get thick and be perfect for pizza sauce….. I think that was a happy accident indeed!

Anyway, below are my pictures. Sorry I forgot to take them while the sauce was put together! I didn’t make the meatballs, rather I used some ground beef and sausage I had pre-cooked. I’m all about convenience!!! Hope you try this out, you won’t be sorry!!!


As a side note, ours is done using whole wheat pasta, which is why the noodles are dark. They are good, but have a different flavor and texture. I also use ground turkey rather than beef.  Can’t tell much of a difference.  We are learning to love them for health purposes…
P.S.  The Essence required is great on lots of things!!!  The recipe is at the bottom of the page.  😀  Hope you love it as much as we do!!!  Waiting for our tomato plants to sprout so we can have fresh tomatoes in our pasta!!!
****Can be frozen and used another time, I do it all the time and it is still just as good!!!
