Spaghetti with Meatballs

I had quite a few garden fresh tomatoes, so I decided I would make spaghetti sauce from scratch with homemade meatballs.  I just wish I had made extra sauce to freeze...on the bright side, we did have leftovers for later this week.


I followed a very good recipe from All Recipes.
There were a few minor changes I made which I indicate below.

Meatballs

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup fresh bread crumbs   1 cup store bought bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley  2 tablespoons fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese 1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 egg, beaten

Sauce

  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • (Also added 1/2 green pepper, 1/2 yellow pepper, 1/2 of a carrot and 1/2 of a roasted red pepper)
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 (28 ounce) cans whole peeled tomatoes  10 garden fresh tomatoes (peeled and crushed)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Don't forget to visit All Recipes for directions on how to bring this all together.
Thank you!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
