This dish looks sensational!
I just send the recipe to my daughter that is studying overseas and she loves Italian food that tastes delicious, and is easy to prepare.
I almost could smell the aromas in your kitchen.

I am so excited to cook this dish this weekend for a my mother in laws birthday. she loves spaghetti and meatballs, so this will be a neat twist.
What advise do you have in preparing/cooking? And I would like to prep meatballs and sauce ahead of time. Should I brown the meatballs, or should I just prepare them ahead of time?

What if you use just ground beef? Would it be horrible?
Amanda H. August 25, 2010
I think they'd still be great -- just don't get lean ground beef. Not that you would have... :)

Looks divine! Love the inclusion of prosciutto in the soffritto . . . a brilliant (as usual) touch, Mr. Hirschfeld!! Seems like this would be perfect for a small dinner party, as the sauce and meatballs could be made ahead and the sheets of pasta easily prepared before serving. Definitely on my "must try soon" list. ;o)

p.s. In the video, you started saying something about why you shoot for 10% less in size than stated in a recipe, but you didn't finish your thought - or I missed it - what is the reason?
Amanda H. August 20, 2010
Oh -- it's just that you always make them larger than you think so aim for 10% smaller than what you're aiming for and they'll be about right.

The icing spatula/spreader is genius!
