Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    Made 2 days ahead and reheated. Meatballs were fairly easy to make - quite large - I think less oil could be used to fry them. I reused some of that oil for the sauce. Sauce was just barely enough for the spaghetti. Meatballs were big, definitely enough for 6; I'd make 18 meatballs, 3 per person. Meatballs were tasty; sauce was fine, nothing special.

    Just made the sauce...used Alice Waters recipe for meatballs. Has a nice lighter taste..if you like a thicker sauce that sticks to the pasta not for you.
