Sunday Supper Showdown: Spaghetti vs. Meatballs

FN Dish wants to know: What's your favorite part of spaghetti and meatballs?

Like peanut butter and jelly and mashed potatoes and gravy, spaghetti and meatballs are two parts of a seemingly unbreakable culinary marriage, and in many homes, these Italian superstars are often the shining component of Sunday supper. Geoffrey Zakarian showcased his version of this timeless comfort food, featuring tender rosemary-laced meatballs simmered in a tomato-basil sauce for bold flavor and served with classic spaghetti, on this morning's all-new episode of The Kitchen. The secret to his moist meatballs is the meat blend he's chosen: a combination of ground pork and veal, plus pork sausage.
