Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is my mother's, Emilia Giorgio, original sauce recipe. The raisin meatball recipe came from Dom's mother, Antoinette Anzilotti.

From Pattie: Growing up, we did not use the term "pasta", but either macaroni or spaghetti. Macaroni (such as Penne, Ziti, Rotini, etc.) was only served on Sunday. Spaghetti was served only during the week because it was considered "every day" or "plain".
