Classic Italian-style meatballs made with beef, pork, or veal and plenty of garlic are just what your spaghetti needed.
In the interest of full disclosure, I must tell you something: This is not my recipe.
Nope, not even a little bit. I
stole am borrowing it from Boyfriend. He makes the meatballs in this house.
Please, try to suppress any “balls” jokes. I know I’m trying.
In all seriousness, this is a recipe that has been tweaked and retweaked and tweaked some more to basic perfection. This recipe has been made so many times that we have a system down: While Boyfriend makes the meatballs, I heat up the oil, set the sauce to simmering, and get the pasta water boiling. He assembles, I fry. Everybody eats. We both clean up. <– That last part is only true sometimes.
