Tender, hand-made meatballs are rolled in breadcrumbs and browned before peas, red wine and, finally, pureed tomatoes, join the mix. After just 15 minutes of simmer time, this hearty, crowd-pleasing sauce is ready to ladle atop your favorite pasta, whether it's spaghetti, mostaccioli or fusilli. Just remember to pass the Parmesan cheese. To make things easy on yourself, the sauce can be made up to three days in advance or frozen in an airtight container for up to six months.
