This is a re-post from last year. Our family tradition going back multiple generations is to make Spaghetti & Meatballs for Christmas. My family makes this dish for Christmas Eve dinner, with a Standing Rib Roast for Christmas night dinner. About 4000 calories/meal.
The pictures below are my two sons, Luke & Carlo, making pasta with their Great-Aunt Lu Dixon, several years ago in Cincinnati. She taught them how to make pasta and the tradition continues to this day, with the boys taking the lead in pasta and meatball preparation.
Merry Christmas to my family and friends, and every one who follows this blog.
