best spaghetti with meatballs (2008)

ROCCO'S

Thanks to the celebrity chef's mother, ROCCO'S—focus of a lame-o reality TV series—slings the best version of this homely dish. The recipe imitates the sainted Neapolitan joints scattered across Brooklyn and Queens, but with a slightly perkier sauce. Maybe $15 is more than you want to pay, but the plate is large enough for two.
