When a family gathers around the table to share a meal, memories are made. Even the casual, weeknight dinner can be filled with great family moments. With families busy schedules, it can be difficult to spend hours in front of the stove creating family recipes from scratch. Mama Mancini's brings the old world, family favorite dishes to your table in a convenient way.
Mama Mancini's brings the old world Italian food from their Grandmother's recipes to the family dinner table. Based on the Sunday "scented memory" of frying meatballs, the first recipe created with the Meatballs in Slow Cooked Italian Sauce.
Anyone who has tried to make meatballs from scratch knows that the process can be slow, tedious process. Mama Mancini's meatballs are are made from 100% beef, whole fresh eggs, Romano cheese, onion, parsley, a pinch of salt and pepper and the exact amount of bread crumbs. Formed by hand and lightly browned, these meatballs are cooked in the Slow Cooked Italian Sauce, which is pure Italian plum tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, some salt and pepper and a bay leaf. The cooking takes about three hours.
Since busy families usually don't have an hour, let alone three hours, to carefully cook meatballs, Mama Mancini's can bring all the flavor and care to the dinner table in just 20 minutes. These meals can be cooked on the stove top or in the microwave. In a fraction of the time, a family can enjoy a delicious meal that will bring everyone back for more.
The Meatballs in Slow Cooked Italian Sauce becomes a hearty meal when served with pasta. While a spaghetti is always a good choice, a penne or even an orecchiette would pair well with the dish. Personally, our family enjoys this dish with a side salad and a crusty loaf of Italian bread to soak up all the extra sauce.
Our family enjoys the Mama Mancini's meatballs because it tastes like some of our favorite restaurant dishes. Meatballs are always a favorite of the kids. Unfortunately, our schedule doesn't allow the leisurely time to create meatballs from scratch and eating out continually can be hard on the budget. With the Mama Mancini's meatballs, our family enjoys the flavors of traditional Italian cuisine at our family dinner table.
