Curling up with a bowl of comfort

Fresh-made meatballs over creamy polenta, topped with fragrant tomato sauce . . . need I say more? This dish falls into the category of Ultimate Comfort Food. Meat, carbs, and sauce, with a little cheese and herbs of course. When it's done right, no dish can truly compare, although spaghetti and meatballs does come close. Just looking at this picture makes me crave the flavors. My favorite spot for finding this dish: 24th and Meatballs, at the corner of NE 24th and NE Glisan in Portland.
