GRAVY alla SINATRA
often make Frankie Spaghetti & Meatballs, which Frank loved all his life,
from his Mom and at his favorite restaurant “Patsy’s” on West 56th
Street in New York.
also liked Maccheroni with Sausage & Meatballs, otherwise known as Sunday
Sauce or simply “Gravy” with Sausage & Meatballs.
SUNDAY GRAVY alla SINATRA
make “Sunday Gravy alla Sinatra,” simply make the above recipe for Spaghetti
& Meatballs. Cook and brown 1 ½ pounds of Italian Sweet Sausages, and after
you have completed step # 5 in previous recipe, add the browned Sausages and
continue cooking and following the above recipe. After you have simmered the
tomatoes and sausages for 1 – 1/4 hours, you will brown the meatballs and add
to “Sauce.” Continue cooking another 35 minutes, on the lowest simmer, and
“Voila,” you’ll end up with Sunday Sauce Gravy alla Sinatra, “Just the way
Frank liked it!”
Frank ate Sunday Sauce Gravy, use Ronzoni brand Spaghetti or Rigatoni pasta,
and don’t forget to have some Frank Sinatra records playing as you make the
Meatballs & Gravy and when you are eating as well. And it is definitely
appropriate to have Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and Jerry Vale playing as well,
but Sinatra is a must. Bon Appetito!
