Spinach "Meat" Balls and Simple Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter

I had a ridiculous amount of CSA spinach to use up and thought making some spinach "meatballs" might be a fun change of pace. Chuck and Tim liked them, but I thought they were a little bread-y for me. But that may also have been because the recipe called for frozen spinach and I used fresh- it was hard to judge exactly how much to use.

The sauce was this super simple tomato, butter and onion sauce from Marcella Hazan that everyone on the internets has been raving about. I figured it was worth a try! Outrageously simple (cut union in half, unwrap butter, open tomato can, throw it all into a pan to simmer), yet has an addictive rich flavor.
