Is Italian REALLY ethnic food? Isn't that one of the major food groups?
What most people know as Italian Food (spaghetti and meatballs with tomato gravy) was actually developed in the U.S. Some think in N.Y. by poor Italian immigrants.
Spaghetti (noodles) is a Chinese invention, and noodles were cheap. Meat was expensive and many grew their own tomatoes and vegetables.
The meatball idea was to make the meat go farther, so everyone in the family could get some meat without having to spend a weeks wages on one night worth of meat.
Noodles was to fill you up, and the tomato gravy was to provide flavor and add vegetables (I know a tomato is a fruit, but you add some veggies to the gravy).
That combination of foods has worked it's way around the world and it's true origins have been blurred, but who cares? Home made noodles and gravy with big seasoned meatballs and Italian sausage....and a nice, sweet Italian (or French) bread can't be beat. Well, unless you get into a lasagna, but we'll talk about that another time.
