  • Summary

    Pasta and meatballs in tomato sauce twirl together onto a fork and then dance with your taste buds. All the elements work in concert: The spaghetti is slightly firm in contrast to the tender meatballs, made with beef and pork, and crushed red pepper flakes add fire and spice to the familiar sauce.

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
    • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
    • 1 can (28 ounces) whole peeled tomatoes, pulsed in blender until almost smooth
    • Coarse salt
    • 1/4 cup whole milk
    • 1 slice (4 inches square and 1/2 inch thick) white bread, crust removed
    • 1/2 pound ground pork
    • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
    • 1/4 cup freshly grated aged pecorino Romano cheese, plus more for serving
    • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
