Meatball Monday at Basi Italia
Basi Italia started offering a Meatball Monday night special. A three course meal is offered – for $20. You get a salad, plate of spagetti with a tennis ball sized meatball and an Italian sausage, swimming in a wonderful marinara sauce, and a dessert (tonight I had a chocolate chip cannoli).
The flavors in the entree of pasta were phenomenal.
The meatball recipe comes from Trish Gentile’s mother’s family recipe with some special touches from John Dornback’s bag of tricks. (I think there were raisins in my meatball tonight – I was so good – it rocked my socks).
It is hard not to order off the regular menu but this deal was too good to pass up – I loved it and hope it does not bounce away.
