Both of my dad's parents came to America from Italy, so his family Italian suppers were legendary! Here is his all-day slow-cooked supper. The sauce is amazing, so make enough for leftovers! The eggs are a family tradition. We used to fight over them, so you can add more if you want.
Olive oil, for browning
3 lbs baby back ribs
1 lb Italian sausage (hot or sweet)
Chicken legs (1 per person)
28 oz tomato sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp sugar
Fresh basil, about 4 leaves
2 hard-boiled eggs
Spaghetti, for serving
Salad, for serving
Italian bread, for serving
In a large skillet with a little olive oil, brown the baby back ribs and then cut into individual portions. Brown the sausage and chicken legs.
In a large slow cooker, add the sauce, seasonings, sugar, and basil. Next, add the cooked hard-boiled eggs. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8. (You can also add your favorite meatball recipe to this, browning the meatballs before adding to the sauce. You may also need more than one slow cooker or you can just divide everything in half.)
Serve with fresh spaghetti cooked al dente, a salad, and crusty bread.
