I grew up in an Italian-American household and spent a LOT of time at my Italian grandmothers house. Sunday was the big day for the gravy with all the meats! Grandma would be in the kitchen all day, we would have a feast and then take naps. Good times! I've spent a long time. Many years getting my sauce to come out like my grandmothers did. There are many very important steps along the way that you can't miss! I have to throw my recipe into the mix here.
http://www.spaghettisauceandmeatballs... This is my labor of love and my effort to keep my Italian family's recipes and traditions going on into the next generations. One very important tip is you must brown the meatballs in salt pork grease prior to putting them in the sauce. That is a very important grandma tip! Happy cooking, happy times and share the love!
