Gee, I haven't made meatballs in a long time. Gore's side of the family used to keep us supplied but we haven't been to visit as often, so we've been doing without. I used to make these Pasta Pie's that were sort of popular back in the day, and this got me to thinking....The first step is making some meatballs. I used a pork-beef combination and added breadcrumbs, Parmesan, parsley, garlic powder, etc.



Also mixed some finely chopped onion and nuked them with a bit of chicken base and water to add to the mixture. A tip from Gore's Italian Gramma.



Normally, I would brown the meatballs before roasting them, but I need these to have a tender exterior, so they just went on a cookie sheet and into my Primo. Here they're about halfway done.



While these cooked, I made some spaghetti, then mixed together ricotta, a couple eggs, parsley, garlic powder, mozzarella and more cheese



I stirred this into the spaghetti and added a fair amount of cream to make it moist enough not to mention heart-friendly and meatballs:



I mixed this all up and put it into a springform pan, covered with mozzarella and into the Oval for about an hour



Removing it,



I served this with sauce and Parmesan, and some extra meatballs:



Thanks for looking.
