Meatballs and Spaghetti

  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Onion 1 Medium, finely chopped
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Sandwich bread slice 1 Ounce, crumbled
  Milk 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Ground pork 6 Ounce
  Ground beef 6 Ounce
  Egg 1 Large
  Parmesan cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs), grated
  Salt 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dried oregano 3⁄4 Teaspoon, crumbled
  Ground black pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  All purpose flour 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Canned tomatoes 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs), chopped or crushed
  Spaghetti 12 Ounce

In an 8-inch skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the olive oil over low heat.
Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is tender, about 7 minutes.
In a large bowl, with a fork, combine the bread and milk until pasty.
Add the pork, beef, egg, Parmesan cheese, salt, oregano, pepper, and onion mixture; gently mix together.
Shape into 24 large meatballs.
Dredge the meatballs in the flour, shaking off the excess.
In a 5-quart saute pan, heat the remaining oil over medium heat.
Saute the meatballs until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and their juice and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until the meatballs are cooked through, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in an 8-quart stockpot of boiling salted water, cook the spaghetti until "al dente"; drain.
Transfer to a large bowl with the meatballs and sauce, and toss to combine.
Serve with additional Parmesan, if you like.
