Foodie Friday: Capisce Ristorante Italiano

Chef Nacomah of Capisce Ristorante Italiano at Winstar World Casino stops by to prepare a Mother's Day feast of spaghetti and meatballs.

This easy spaghetti and meatballs recipe takes about an hour to prepare and kids will be able to do most of the cooking. Of course, we recommend adult supervision. The spaghetti and meatballs can be paired with a garden salad and breadsticks or is a hearty, stand-alone meal.

Capisce also offers a three-course Mother’s Day special all weekend – Friday, May 10 through Sunday, May 12 – for those families who prefer to keep the mess out of the kitchen.

Capisce opens every day at 5pm.
