Spaghetti and Beanballs from Veganomicon
The beanball recipe from veganomicon is ridiculously delicious. The recipe reminded me of something that I use to make in my early vegetarian days from a not so great old ass cookbook. So I was a bit wary of how these would come out. I think Peter was too..he kinda made a face when I told him we were having spaghetti and beanballs for dinner. We were both very surprised at how good they were (and super easy to make). I used a very red wine heavy sauce that my maa made for us for after Reno's birth that has been in the freezer for quite some time now. Luckily the freezer has been kind to it and it was still good. I also chose to fry the beanballs instead of baking them. I highly recommend frying them. I can't imagine them tasting as good without the bits of fried outside on them.

What's great about this recipe is that it makes quite a bit (for 2 people). So you have leftovers to make delicious beanball subs the next day...
