Preparation of Meatballs
1. Preheat oven to 450F.
2. Quickly place the bread under cold running water to dampen, squeezing out any excess water. Add to a large bowl.
3. Take the spicy Italian sausage out of its casing and add the meat to the bowl.
4. Add the ground beef, egg, oregano, herbs, molasses, cumin, and garlic powder to the bowl, as well.
5. Use your hands to mix all the ingredients together just until combined. Lightly grease your hands with olive oil. Roll into meatballs, using 2 tablespoons mixture each.
6. Place the meatballs into an oven-safe deep dish or cast iron skillet.
7. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over the meatballs. Bake for 15 minutes.
Preparation of Sauce
1. In the meantime, make the sauce. Combine the San Marzano tomato, minced garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon black pepper into a food processor. Pulse 2-3 times to break up the tomatoes into small pieces.
2. Pour the sauce over the baked meatballs. Cover with tinfoil and bake 15-20 more minutes, until the meatballs are fully cooked.
Preparation of Spaghetti
1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain, rinse with cold water, and toss generously in olive oil. Set aside.
Final Steps
1. Add the sliced provolone and fresh mozzarella evenly over the sauce-y meatballs. Bake for 8 minutes, broiling the last 2 minutes, until cheesy and golden on top.
2. Serve immediately with freshly grated parmesan and basil along with the spaghetti. Enjoy!
