Cook With Jamie. I decided to use my own recipe for the meatballs and sauce. I do not have the measurements for the meatballs, I do it by eye and they always taste good. I used ground beef and pork and added an egg, some Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, parsley, oregano, salt, pepper... I think that's it. Usually I will broil or bake the meatballs but the recipe in the book said to fry them so I did! Then I added them to my tomatoes, the tomatoes I canned with my Dad this summer, and let them simmer for about 20 minutes. I seasoned the sauce with basil, salt and pepper. I was going to make the Pappardella but I am not Super Person so store bought noodles worked out nicely.
To quote Chris, "This is a delicious sauce." And it really was. The flavor of the tomatoes was better than any canned tomato I have ever used. I hope my Dad will be ready to can twice as many tomatoes next year!
And as a bonus I found out the I Heart Cooking Clubs is now featuring Jamie Oliver! If I had know I would have waited to make the Roast Chicken Breast Wrapped in Pancetta with Leeks and Thyme!
