Put on a spin on an Italian-American standard with this Spaghetti and Bone Marrownara Meatballs recipe from chef Richard Blais’s new cookbook, So Good. The pork-and-beef meatballs are made light and fluffy with ricotta cheese mixed in, along with a medley of fresh herbs (basil, oregano, sage, rosemary, and parsley), while the hearty marinara sauce is enriched with tomato paste, red wine, and bone marrow. You can get marrow bones or soup bones from the meat counter, and ask your butcher to chop them up for you, to make extracting the luscious marrow easier. Stir the cooked spaghetti into the garlicky red sauce so it coats every strand, and finish the dish with toasted bread crumbs and grated Parmesan. This might just be the best plate of spaghetti and meatballs you’ll ever eat.
