On Top of Spaghetti:  Frankies Spuntino Meatballs Recipe

Tuesday, April 16, 2013


As I sat down to write this post, to my utter frustration, the words just wouldn’t flow – words I liked, that is.  I couldn’t think of any cute meatball stories or anecdotes, or pithy, witty commentary.  To be honest, all that kept running through my head was a song that I remembered loving as a child.  Don’t you just hate when that happens?  You get a tune stuck in your head and you just can’t shake it loose, no matter how hard you try!  So, I decided to turn lemons into lemonade and just go with it. 

When I was putting this together, I realized that I was really enjoying myself.  I actually may  create posts like this more often.  A day and a half of aggravation turned into a total win-win.  I had a bunch of fun and got my meatball post up.  And you, dear readers, get some nice pictures, a cute song and a fabulous meatball recipe – all without having to wade through a lot of verbosity.

    Scumptious! Meatballs in sauce are always enjoyable and yours look wonderful.

    Meatballs with pasta are always a win. And these meatballs look really yummy. I’m glad you enjoyed writing this post even if the writer’s block set you back a bit.

    Love the song. I think of this sort of thing all the time. Love the recipe. Why don’t more people put pine nuts in meatballs. Pine nuts are good in everything.

    I am intrigued–raisins in meatballs? This I’ve got to try.
    Usually I’m all about the vegetables in my meat, but raisins . . . this sounds like a recipe for Laura at Sprint 2 The Table’s Friday Strange But Good link up!

    I’ve only made meatballs a couple of times, and my family was unimpressed and prefers the frozen ones… but, this recipe looks like it could be the one to win them over!
