Thanksgiving Pasta Before Turkey

John A, I promised some pics of my sauce making exploits.

Always start with good tomatoes.

Meatballs, beef, veal, lamb and pork.

Season well.

Don't forget the braciole.

Fry it all up with a 5 pound pork butt.

And you get this.

    WOW that looks wonderful. How is the pork butt served? Like a pot roast in the gravy or more like pulled pork? I have to try this sometime. This would keep me in gravy with past for 6 months, ah but what a wonderful way to go! Thanks for the pics and the inspiration.

    Edited to ask, also, do you season your gravy with traditional Italian spices, onions, etc. or do the tomatoes stand alone, or pick up some of the meat flavor? You can see I really am inspired!!

    Buongiorno Buoni Amici, Yeah I put on about ten pounds yesterday. I'll have to behave until Christmas.

    Thank you for the kinds remarks. I got one pic before everything was devoured.

    The pork just feel apart and melted in your mouth. This fed 20 people easily with some leftovers. Later today when everyone is making turkey sandwiches, I'll be having a meatball hoagie.

    morningglory, I only add salt, pepper and a few basil leaves to the sauce. The real flavor comes from the meat. Something this massive needs to simmer 5-6 hours. [/img]

    Joe,
    Your way of making a great gravy and its meat echoes how we do it.....I've seem so many Braciole recipes...but we always used salt,pepper,cheese and garlic and parsley...I've seen salami, I've seen hard boiled eggs....but your sauce, meat and gravy procedure is like the 50+ year old recipe I learned from watching my mom, and before her my grandma cooking on Sundays. Sorry to say with just the four in my family...we dispense with Pasta before turkey like those food orgies of my youth....but you can bet we're having pasta sunday, not turkey leftovers!!!!

    Pasta, who needs pasta? Give me one of those meatballs, a braciole, some of that pork, a salad, and a piece of crusty bread. Add some of that wine you brought back from Italy and I'll fight Lee for the couch after eating. Great job Joe.

    Great meal and great photos

    When I was growing up in Mass, we used to have ads for a pasta company - Prince. I always will remember "Wednesday is Prince Spaghetti day!"

    At one point they started running an ad : "How do you know the Pilgrims had turkey on Thanksgiving; maybe they had Spaghetti"

    Having seen those photos, I now believe that Thanksgiving could have had fantastic Italian!......and we'll leave on the pasta!
