Dad’s Spaghetti and Meatballs

11 January, 2008
Dad always made enough at Easter so there would be plenty through out the year. I had to cut it down. This will serve 4 comortably with some left over for the next day.

Served with some Lambrusco, garlic breadsticks and steamed broccoli, and your tastebuds will take a trip to “Italy”.

6 large cans crushed tomatoes pureed

2 cans paste

1- 15 oz can Sauce

1 can water

In 5 quart dutch oven add tomatoes

sauce, paste and water (using the sauce can I swish the water through all the cans making sure I got all the tomato product out of them.)

Stir this really well.

Now comes the tricky part, as I do not measure so these are approximate measurements.

1 tsp. Each of sweet basil, oregano, garlic powder, & Italian seasoning

1 skinny can of Kraft Parmesan Cheese

1 small onion minced

Approximately 1 tsp. parsley

1-2 packages of saltines crushed
