Dinner & a Movie with Felipa Solis: The Godfather Part 1

Studio 9

This week on Studio 9 we feature one of our favorite segments– Dinner & a Movie with Felipa Solis.  Our focus is The Godfather Part 1 and we pair it wih a simple, yet delicious spaghetti and meatball recipe that Felipa shows how simple it is to put together.  

If you’re a Godfather fan like most of us, then you know there is a great deal of emphasis on food and cooking… from the wedding scene, to family dinners to when the families go to war.

Peter Clemenza teaches Michael Corleone the ultimate recipe for Spaghetti and Meatballs and Sausage, where he says, “hey kid you might learn something .. you may have to cook for 20 guys some day.”

Here is that simple recipe: 

Italian Sausage- Fry it in a Pan

Meatballs- Combine  1 lb Ground beef and 1/2 pork

                Salt and Pepper to taste

                 Red Pepper Flakes

                 1 minced clove of Garlic

                 1/3 cup of Bread Crumbs

                 Olive Oil

Combine all of the ingredients. Shape into meatballs, and  fry until all sides are browned. Then place in the oven for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
