Directions

  1. In the casserole, heat the oil over moderate heat until hot. Add the onions and cook, stirring constantly, until golden. Add the water, canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, and tomato paste.

Add braciole and meatballs and cook for 20 minutes longer.
  2. Cook the pasta according to package directions and drain. Transfer to a large bowl, add enough sauce to coat and toss to combine. Sprinkle with cheese. Transfer the meat to a platter and spoon some sauce over it. Serve the meat and pasta separately.

For stuffing:

  3. Spread a thin layer of the stuffing on each slice of the meat, roll up the meat to enclose the stuffing and tie with string.
