Recipe #18: Lazy Meatballs

Fabio Viviani’s Lazy Meatballs

This recipe is from Fabio Viviani who apparently was on Top Chef. For all my Food Network/Cooking/Food Shows, I have never watched Top Chef. I think it was less food and more reality TV, so it never really caught my attention. This recipe did however.

These are pretty much as lazy as you can get while still eating fresh and well. Cut up Italian sausage links into bite sized pieces and simmer them with onions and garlic in a tomato sauce until cooked through. It was surprisingly satisfying without any pasta too. All we had with it was some really old and stale crusty bread. It was warm, filling but not heavy, and very comforting. The bread is necessary though to soak up all the sauce.  I’m looking forward to making this one again.

As a side note, I am totally in love with Trader Joe’s Tuscano Marinara Sauce

I’ve never found a ready-made sauce that I’ve really liked until this one. Very balanced, very tomato-y, not too sweet. TJ’s always gets me with those free samples. Dang it they work!!  This was no different, they had it out with some frozen mozzarella sticks and I had to buy it. Fried cheese is generally awesome but it was the sauce that caught my attention. (Not that that stopped me from buying both…) So if you are looking for a good pizza or pasta sauce, check this one out.
