I’m frantic about my meatballs.
Extended family will dine next week on spaghetti and meatballs the day before Thanksgiving. I can’t remember what to do, and I want to do it right.
The Italian Mama advises me that I have choices. I can brown the meatballs in olive oil and then cook them in the sauce all day, or I can throw them directly in the sauce. The browning gives a little crunch, but it doesn’t ultimately matter. In her words, we’ll still reach the “goodness inside.”
I can throw them. I can relax and still reach the goodness inside.
