Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs
Wow! Delicious! I've tried several spaghetti sauces on the Allrecipes site. This is the best by far. I made a few changes based on my family's preferences:
(1) We like really meaty sauce, so I browned and added 2 lbs of 85/15 ground beef instead of the meatballs. Before browning, I added double the amount of the parmesan cheese, black pepper, garlic powder and parsley that the orignal meatball recipe called for. I added the beef mixture to the sauce mixture after the sauce had simmered for 90 minutes.
(2) To the sauce, I added 3-4 tablespoons of Italian Seasoning, doubled the salt and pepper, used 2 bay leaves instead of 1 and added about 1/4 cup of additional sugar.
Great recipe. We'll definitely be preparing this one again.
