LONG ISLAND: Mamma Lombardi’s

Sunday dinner, everyday.

That’s the phrase that pops in my head when I think of Mamma Lombardi’s in Holbrook.

It’s a warm, inviting atmosphere where you’re taken care of to the T by the staff. So much so, it’s like you become part of their family during each time you visit.

And the food? Trust me, you’ll always be full after a visit to this Italian Long Island staple restaurant. The portions are huge, but who would have it any other way? It’s Mamma’s cooking. Fresh, flavorful, delicious. The pictures truly are a thousand words.

Check out some photos of my 4th of July trip to Mamma’s below:

   

Mozzarella en Carrozza.
  
Fried Zucchini.
  
Veal & Peppers Parmigiana. Mamma usually makes it with sweet peppers, but i requested it be made with hot peppers this time. SO good.

Easy(!!) Crockpot Meat Sauce

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I love eating out of convenience.

Anything that’s fast and easy to make earns huge points in my book. Which leads me to a simple, easy thing you can make any night of the week.

Meat sauce!

IMG_4785Here’s what I used:

-Leftover ground beef I had in the freezer (about a half pound to a pound’s worth)

-Herbs/spices (garlic herb zesty seasoning from Kroger, oregano, parsley)

-Jar of plain tomato sauce

-Pasta

Here’s how I did it:

-Turned up my crockpot to high, put a liner in it.

-In a frying pan with a small amount of oil, turn your stove burner up to medium heat. Add ground beef and add herbs/spices to your liking (I added parsley).

-Cook until brown

-While that’s going, pour your jar of tomato sauce into your crockpot and add herbs/spices to your liking (I added the garlic herb seasoning and oregano).

-Pour beef into your crockpot and stir it all around

-Cook for 1-2 hours on high

-Cook up your pasta

-Serve
