Is it really just because of the Lady and the Tramp that spaghetti and meatballs has become this iconic romantic dinner? Or is it because there’s something about silky tomato sauce, satisfying beefy meatballs, and perfectly al dente noodles that just puts the Rome in romance? We don’t know. Ladies and Tramps of the court, we’re only a caveman. But there is one thing we do know: whether you need Valentine’s Day programming or counter-programming, there are really very few dishes as timelessly delicious as spaghetti and meatballs. Our ground beef is on special this month, and our humble meat counter has many of the ideal provisions: noodles, tomatoes, tomato sauce, pancetta, and more.
