Recession Recipe: Fettuccine with Meat Sauce

Hello all! It's been a huge week here on Economy Bites. Last Monday, ABC Sacramento news10 aired their interview with us, and shortly after we finally got the show up and running on iTunes. We now have #3 podcast in the "food" category. Woo hoo! Like I said - it was a huge week! You E. Biters make it all possible for us, so thank you for watching! We couldn't do it without you.

OK - back to business. A few notes on this recipe:

Ideally you should cook your meat sauce for up to two hours and, if you have the willpower of a much stronger woman than me, let it sit in the fridge over night before you eat it. The longer the sauce sits, the more the flavors meld and the more delicious it gets. If you can't wait, it'll still be delicious, it'll just be more delicious when you go back for seconds the next day.

As for re-purposing, this sauce would make a nice sloppy joe, that is if you got tired of pasta and decided you wanted a big 'ol hearty sandwich. You could also eat it like a meatball sub - on a hard roll with melted cheese on top. I am seriously hungry now.

Enjoy your meat sauce, carnivores! Check back next week for our Brooklyn Extravaganza episode co-starring a well known figure in BK! Can't wait for you to see it!

As always, you can find us this recipe and more on our site -
