Cooking Basics..Everything you need to know about cooking

Spaghetti and Meatballs

1. Saute 2 tablespoons fresh basil, 1 meduim finely chopped onion, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and about 1/2 cup chopped portabella mushrooms for about 3 minutes, or until veggies look tender.

2. Add one 6 oz can tomato paste, one 8 oz can tomato sauce, one 28 oz can diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup hearty red wine (you can barely taste it, but it adds some awesome flavor, however, you can omit it), and 3 1 /2 tablespoons sugar. Let simmer.

3. Combine 1 pound turkey, 1 egg, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 1/4 cup aged parmesan cheese, and one package Lipton onion soup mix (the lipton onion soup mix is the key to sucess!) Form into meatballs, I like to make fairly small ones, but you can do big ones if you wish.

3. Sear the meatballs in 3 tablespoons olive oil, about 2 minutes on each side, or until each sides have a brown color.

4. Add the meatballs to the sauce, and let simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Whens sauce is done simmering, add 1 lb cooked spaghetti and bon appetit!
