Joanne is Italian and she makes her own spaghetti sauce and meatballs. It takes five hours to make. She first puts tomato puree and tomato paste in a big pot. She puts the flame on real low and puts in fresh garlic and onion. She puts black pepper, oregano, crushed red pepper and a basil leaf in. She stirs everything from the bottom of the pot. While that is simmering, she starts the meatballs. She uses ground beef, ground pork and ground veal. She puts all of the meat in a big bowl. She pours a raw egg over the meat and mixes it all together with her hands. Then she adds, garlic, onion and Romano cheese. She pours breadcrumbs, olive oil and milk over the mixture.
She mixes it until everything is combined. She takes a portion of the meat; around two inches and rolls them into balls. She places the meatballs in a pan with a little bit of vegetable oil. She fries her meatballs because the grease is where all the flavor is. Once the meatballs are brown, she places them in the sauce and pours the grease in. She stirs the sauce until everything is mixed together. There is one more ingredient that Joann puts in her sauce, but it is a secret. She will never tell what it is but her sauce tastes so good. Her family loves it when she makes her sauce and meatballs.
