    Instead of continuing to hijack MIA's tread, I will add my own for Hoot619 and any one else who would like my Italian Spaghetti recipe.

    STAN’S ITALIAN SPAGHETTI

    Ingredients:

    3 Large cans whole tomatoes (puree in blender)

    1 Large can tomato sauce

    1 Can tomato paste

    3 Cloves garlic (chopped fine or pressed)

    1 Large green pepper (chopped)

    1 Medium onion (chopped)

    1 Tbls. Oregano *

    1 Tbls. Italian seasoning *

    1/8-Tsp. red pepper (crushed)**

    2 Bay leaves (crushed)

    ¼ lb. Butter

    Pepperoni, sliced thin

    Preparation:

    Put all ingredients, except pepperoni and butter, into a medium stockpot and simmer for about 4 hours. Melt butter in large saucepan and add pepperoni. Saute pepperoni over low heat until grease is partially fried out of pepperoni, and then add pepperoni to sauce. (Save grease for meatballs below). Simmer sauce for another 1 to 2 hours or until sauce is thick. Add water at any time if sauce gets too thick.


    *Add more Oregano and/or Italian seasoning if more flavor is desired.

    ** Add more crushed red pepper if hotter sauce is desired.


    MEATBALLS

    1 ½ lbs. ground meat (beef, venison, elk, or any desired wild meat, etc)

    ¾ lb. ground Italian sausage

    1 med. onion (chopped fine)

    1 egg


    Mix meat, chopped onions and egg (egg helps meat bond). Season to taste. Make into small balls and brown in saucepan that contains the left over butter and pepperoni grease. Add to sauce and simmer for 1 to 2 hours until sauce is thick. Add water at any time if sauce gets too thick.

    Remove meatballs from sauce and serve in separate dish. Serve over spaghetti.

    Come on oz put the recipe up here and let the people compare them. Remember that my meat balls are for spaghetti & meat balls not to be served alone. There is a big difference. Or are you just a lot of air and no substance.

    oz you didn't answer quartering,s question.

    A little truffle oil mixed in the pasta after draining is pure joy. The pasta takes on actual flavor.

    Try it.
