Great Sunday Dinners

This family dinner menu is great for a Sunday. Get your partner (mother, friend, dog) to occupy the kids while you make the meatballs. They are not too time-consuming but do require some concentration. The meatballs can simmer away for the afternoon and you only need to make your spaghetti, garlic bread and peas later. The garlic bread takes 15 minutes and is so good, you may want to double the recipe. I have one of those colander things INSIDE my pasta pot, and if you have the same, you can drain the pasta once its cooked, put the colander back in the boiling water and throw the frozen peas in for three minutes while you are plating up the pasta. My kids like peas plain so I do a bowl for them and one for the “grownies” as my daughter calls us. It requires nothing more than a squeeze of lemon juice, torn basil, a drizzle of good olive oil and a little Maldon sea salt for good measure.

My friend Julia made these for me one time and I immediately asked for the recipe. Let them simmer all day and watch people crowd around the amazing aroma.
