Italian Gravy & Meatballs 'Cause I Miss My Grands

Now that summer is here and I don't see my grands everyday, I'm missing them. I miss them saying "Mimi, what's for dinner?"

So, I thought I'd post their favorite meal in the whole wide world.

Here they are eating brownies one day after school. I miss these cute faces.

Get your meatballs ready and start cooking them on medium heat and brown them on both sides.

Saute onion and garlic in olive oil, until soft, add 1/2 cup of red wine and let it reduce for a couple of minutes, then add the two cans of tomatoes (San Marzano) and l can of tomato paste.

Add a teaspoon of basil, oregano and parsley, (Italian Blend is good too), salt, pepper, and sugar to taste.

Cover and simmer 2-3 hours.

The pasta you see here is linguine, my grands like it on all different kinds of pasta. Any pasta you like will do.

I Wish You Love and The Joy That Being A Grandma Brings,



  1. I can see how you'd miss those faces! They're cute. :~)

  2. They are adoraable and I love that you use San Marzano tomatoes, they are the best. They are lucky to have such a great grandma
