When it comes to cooking with J flo, convention to traditional is thrown out of the window. He likes to use two food combinations and put them together. Does it work? Sometimes it does. Sometimes it doesn’t. But for him, it’s all about having a little fun with food in the kitchen.
Recipes via Jay Florsheim:
SpaghettiOs and Meatballs Alfredo
1 can of SpaghettiOs and Meatballs
1 cup of heavy cream
6 oz of grated parmesan
Fresh basil and garlic
Parsley to garnish
crushed red pepper
Strain SpaghettiOs and Meatballs until all sauce is in the pan. Add basil, red pepper and garlic to sauce and simmer. Sautee garlic in olive oil, add cream and cook on medium/low.
Grate parmesan and add to cream, stir until melted. Put SpaghettiOs on a skewer ( This is very important).
Pan-fry meatballs with olive oil and garlic until browned. Lay skewers across the pan (Another VERY essential step). Plate any way you want, as long as it’s fancy. Enjoy. Preferably with a 2009 Bordeaux.
