Mama Maroni's Meatballs and Sauce
55 mins (prep 15, cooking 40)
16 ingredients
8-10 servings
From "Throwdown with Bobby Flay". My boyfriend Loves this dish, he say's that they are the best meatballs he has ever eaten. They are great served with spaghetti or especially good served in a toasted hoagie roll with a little melted cheese on top. The sauce is thick and full of flavor. Be sure to use good quality "Crushed" tomatoes, not diced or stewed etc. It's key to the sauce coming out perfectly. I add a little red pepper flakes for a little more kick. Also, the original recipe doesn't mention adding salt to the meat mixture, but it is needed in my opinion. These are super easy and so, so good!
