'Lady & The Tramp' Lovers' Spaghetti with Beef Meatballs, Tomato Sauce & Parmesan (gf. avail)

Is there anything more romantic than sharing a sumptuous string of spaghetti  over a candlelit dinner? You too can create the iconic 'spaghetti scene' from Lady and the Tramp this Valentine's Day with our limited edition lovers' spaghetti.

Spaghetti alla chitarra is a traditional dish hailing from Abruzzo, Italy and is made using a tool resembling a guitar, or chitarra (pictured below). The chitarra is a wooden frame with parallel wires that the pasta dough is pushed through to give the individual strands their shape. 

Meatballs, or polpette, have been a staple in Italian cooking since Ancient Roman times, and were even featured in the ancient cookbook, Apicius. Nothing says Italian food like a big bowl of spaghetti and meatballs—unless you are actually Italian. Indeed, you'll be hard-pushed to find this dish in Italia, unless, of course, it is to cater to the palate of American tourists. But we see no reason to be too puritanical, for our beautiful beef polpettine, served as they are over a rich tomato sauce and fresh spaghetti alla chitarra, are simply sublime. And the sprinkling of authentic Parmigiano cheese certainly ups the italianità quotient.
