GRAVY

aka SUNDAY SAUCE

Gravy? Some call it Sunday Sauce, or Sunday Gravy. Whether you cal it Gravy or Sunday Sauce, this dish eaten every Sunday by a million Italian families across America is the Supreme Dish of Italian-America .. The dish stems from the famed Neapolitan sauce known as Ragu Neapolitan in it’s native city Napoli (Naples) in Italy  … This famous Neapolitan Ragu varies in it’s preparation from neighborhood to neighborhood in Napoli as well as family to family in this capital city of Campania as well as Sicily and all over the United States with Italian-American families in Brooklyn, New York, New Jersey, Boston, Providence RI, Baltimore, New Orleans, and all over the country.

Yes, in America, some families call it Gravy and others Sunday Sauce, Ragu Neapolitan or simply Ragu in Napoli. And in America some families eat the entire sauce with the meats on  a plate with maccherroni (short Pasta) while others do as they do in Naples and eat some of the Sauce without the meat with maccheroni as one course and after the eat the pasta with sauce they’ll have the main course eating a little bit of each type of meat in the ragu along with some greens or boiled potatoes .. No matter how you like to eat the dish with the meats and pasta toghether or in two courses, this dish is always a tasty succulent treat that everyone loves .. Get some nice Italian Wine, put on some Sinatra, and all will be good in your world. Enjoy, be well and God Bless...

Sinatra Scrambled Eggs

Screen Shot 2015-12-31 at 1.27.41 PM

Frank Eating a Scrambled Egg Sandwich at home … Palm Springs California

 

Besides eating his Italian-American favorite foods, Frank loved eating a nice simple Scrambled Egg Sandwich on good old American white bread for breakfast and anytime during the day as a in-between meals snack prepared by his Valet George Jacobs ..

 

SCRAMBLED EGG SANDWICH alla SINATRA

Ingredients : 2 slices White Bread, 2 large Eggs, 2 tablespoons Milk, Butter, Salt & Black Pepper, 4 tablespoons Olive Oil

Place 2 tablespoons Olive Oil in a large non-stick frying pan and turn heat to medium low .. Add bread and cook until slightly brown. Turn bread over and cook to slightly brown. Remove from pan and set aside on the plate you will serve the sandwich.

Add eggs to a small bowl with a pinch each of Salt & Pepper and the Milk. Beat eggs with a fork until completely mixed …

Add remaining Olive Oil and Butter to pan and turn heat to medium.When the pan is heated and the butter starts to sizzle, add the eggs to pan and let cook while stirring for about 15 seconds. Turn heat to low and let the eggs cook without stirring for 45 seconds.

Flip the eggs over and let cook for 60 seconds on low heat. Turn heat off.

Place the cooked eggs on one piece of bread. Sprinkle a little salt & pepper over eggs. Top with second slice of bread and serve.

Spaghetti Meatballs is Really Italian

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 6.14.06 PM
 
SPAGHETTI & MEATBALLS
 
“It’s Really Italian” !!!

For years now, many so called food Experts who thought they knew more than they actuall did wrote disdainfully of the famed Italian dish Spaghetti & Meatballs, saying “it was not authentic Italian food.” Well, “oh Contraire.” Guess what? Spaghetti & Meatballs is Italian. Or should I say Pasta & Metaballs. Yes, pasta with meatballs is a dish eaten quite often in southern Italy and the regions of Puglia, Sicily, and Abruuzo, a native dish is Pasta, (usually short Maccheroni) dressed with Meatballs as a special treat .. The names pf these dishes are called Pasta Seduta, meaning Seated Pasta and Maccaroni Azzese .. Yes Pasta w/ Meatballs, “It’s really Italian.”   I myself have written about this in my book SUNDAY SAUCE -When Italian-Americans Cook, where I stated at the time that I had hear of certain areas serving Meatballs along with their pasta. And even before I heard this I surmised that out of so many millions of poor Italians over the years it was most certain that in poor familys not wanting to wash more than 1 dish per person eating that momma would not serve pasta and meatballs in seperate courses but together on one plate of Pasta & Meatballs (Spagetti Meatballs). And so as stated before Pasta with Meatballs is an authentic dish served all over Southern Italy, it’s reall Italian Food and has names for it, again Pasta Seduta and Maccheroni Azzese .. So there, “In your face Food Snobs,” snubbing our beloved Spaghetti & Meatballs, no it’s not just Italian-American, which is not a bad thing, it’s really Real italian and the mystery and controversy is now setted, it’s Spaghetti & Meatballs, millions love it, and billions of plates have been served over the years. Why? People love it, as simple as that ..
