Let’s start the great debate! Do you twirl or slurp? (his/her answer revealed at the end)
On the days when I want to do nothing and just lounge and enjoy the warm summer sun, I like to make pasta. Spaghetti and meatballs make the perfect lazy summer day meal.
Like Sandra Lee, I used to cheat and buy premade bottles of sauce from Trader Joe’s. But, that was until I found this simple recipe for tomato sauce that only needed three ingredients to make. That’s amazing, right?! I am more health conscious these days and would much rather cook than buy it premade…especially if it’s easy and does not require much time. I would like to thank Marcella Hazan for creating this brilliant recipe. This was the perfect recipe for my first foray into sauce making.
As for the meatballs, easy-peasy! The best part was squishing all the ingredients with the meat and of course, making them into balls!
But the hardest part for me has always been time management…like what should I cook first, should I do this now or later, but I want it all to be done at the same time, etc. etc. By this point, I’m sure you all understand the anxiety I feel when planning a meal.
