Italian food for Bastille Day! No, we're just continuing to try to clear out the freezer. These were the 10 meatballs and tupperful of sauce we froze last February for a rainy day. As it's been raining every day, now was the time, and it's nice to get home to an almost ready-made meal occasionally.
We nuked the meatballs for a minute so they wouldn't be cold inside, then nestled them into the defrosted sauce, which was percolating in a deep pot. When the spaghetti was ready, we made a nest out of it on each plate, and carefully placed the surviving meatballs on top; the rest had melted into the sauce, which was even better for them.
Some salt and grated cheese on top, and we had a classic Italian-American meal.
