Prep: 30 min. Cook: 1-3/4 hours

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (28 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • MEATBALLS:
  • 3 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • Hot cooked spaghetti

Directions

In a 6-qt. stockpot, combine the first six ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 1-1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
For meatballs, preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, combine bread crumbs and water; let stand 5 minutes. Stir in eggs, cheese, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper. Add beef and pork; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 1-in. balls.
Place meatballs on a greased rack in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Add meatballs to sauce, stirring gently to combine. Serve with spaghetti.
Freeze option: Freeze cooled meatball mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a covered saucepan, stirring gently and adding a little water if necessary.
Yield: 10 servings.
Editor's Note: To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
