Specialty Recipe

"semi-homemade” Pasta Sauce & Meatballs

Ingredients for Sauce
1-1/2 jars traditional Prego Sauce
1/2 cup grated Romano Cheese
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
1 Tablespoon dried basil
Ingredients for Meatballs
3 pounds short ribs, cut in cubes
3 pounds ground beef 80/20%
5 links of Hot Italian Sausage
5 links of Sweet Italian Sausage
1/4 cup reconstituted dried minced onion
1/2 cup grated Romano Cheese
2-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
2-1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1-1/2 teaspoons salt

Sauce: To get the right flavor for the sauce you need to add the meats - short ribs, cut from the cone cube into 1-1/2 inch pieces – brown in electric skillet and add to sauce. Next brown in same skillet – do not drain grease! 5 links hot Italian sausage cut into 3rds and 5 links mild or sweet Italian sausage cut into 3rds. Add to sauce

Then make your meatballs, and brown in same skillet in same grease and add to sauce. Simmer sauce 4 to 5 hours stirring as needed to keep from scorching on bottom of pan. I use a heavy duty 18” stainless steel pan with a 1/4 inch bottom to diffuse the heat.

Meatballs: Mix together well with your hands. Squish together golf ball size of mixture then roll into a ball. I make all the meatballs, then brown them well in batches.
