Well, this recipe for Real Spaghetti (I used fettuccine) and Meatballs was interesting for me. I had a really good time making it. The recipe was very easy and yet made me feel like I was really accomplishing something great in the kitchen. That seems to be a recurring theme with many of the Barefoot recipes.
So I really had a good time cooking, but I just wasn’t into the taste. I don’t why, but I just didn’t enjoy the meatballs. I liked the sauce okay, but couldn’t eat the meatballs. I think I like a smaller meatball and I probably have a preconceived idea of what meatballs taste like and this wasn’t it.
WH seemed to enjoy the recipe although he did say it “tasted like a recipe Barefoot Contessa would make”. I’m not sure what the means but he makes that comment a lot. He isn’t the biggest fan of Barefoot Contessa (I swear he’s a good person!)
Anyway, thanks to Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake for choosing this recipe, which you can find here. I really did enjoy cooking this meal, just unfortunately didn’t enjoy eating it. Oh well, you can’t win ’em all.
