I was on a quest for the perfect spaghetti sauce, and thanks to this recipe from the NY Times, I think it's officially over. It tastes just like the sauce my childhood best friend's parents used to make -- they immigrated from Italy and had me over for dinner every Sunday. I didn't have any chuck roasts or beef briskets on hand, so I just let the meatballs simmer in the sauce. I like the thinner consistency because that's how my friend's parents made it, but my boyfriend prefers a thicker sauce -- next time I will cut down on the water. Also, instead of 1 cup of breadcrumbs, I used 4 slices of white bread that I tore into small pieces and then soaked in 1/2 cup buttermilk for 10 min. to form a paste, a tip I learned from the Best Recipe Cookbook.
