Spaghetti & Meatballs
Did you know that if you pay attention you NEVER have to pay for noodles? There always seems to be a sale that matches a coupon, and therefore the store ends up giving you the pasta! For this very reason, I must admit I have a small pasta noodle stockpile. I promise I’m light years away from the folks on Extreme Couponing, but in the pasta department I’m gaining speed.
So, for this month’s Cookbook Challenge I knew which cookbook to check out. PASTA (that is actually the title).
Here are the cast of characters (minus parsley & an egg)
Combine the breadcrumbs, beef, onion, egg, and parsley in a bowl & season to taste with salt & pepper. Spread out the flour on a plate. Form meatballs from mixture and roll in flour.
Meanwhile, boil the noodles.
After draining the noodles well add to the meatballs & sauce. Serve topped with Parmesan cheese & side with cheesy bread.
Give it a try…meatballs aren’t as tough as you may think. Oh, and for a “healthy” rendition, try turkey meatballs.
