Ingredients

2 cups tomatoes
chopped
4 tablespoons butter
2 small onions
chopped
1 clove garlic
chopped
4 slices bacon
cooked and crumbled
½ cup marsala sauce
*
½ teaspoon oregano
dried
*
½ pound pasta, fettuccine

1 cup Parmesan cheese
Meatballs
½ pound ground chuck (ground beef)
2 slices french bread

*
1 tablespoon parsley leaves

2 large eggs

¼ cup Parmesan cheese

Directions

Put the tomatoes trough a food mill to purée pulp.

In a large skillet or medium saucepan, melt half the butter.

Add the garlic, tomato purée, and crumbled bacon.

Then add salt and pepper to taste and boil this sauce hard for five minutes.

Add the marsala and oregano, and cook for another 5 minutes. Set aside.

Put all the meatball ingredients except the vegetable oil.

Shape the mixture into 12 balls, and in the skillet brown them on all sides in the vegetable oil.

Do not overcook, they will cook further in the sauce.

Add the meatballs to the tomato sauce and keep warm.

Cook the pasta until al dente, drain well and return to the pot in which it cooked.

Add remaining butter and toss well. Add several large spoonfuls of the tomato sauce and toss well again.

Transfer pasta to a large serving platter or bowl.

Pour sauce and meatballs overall, serve and pass the cheese if desired.
