One of the husband's favorite dishes is spaghetti and meatballs. I don't make it very often, but when I do, it's always a hit. In fact, he likes it so much, I make a big pan of it so he can eat the leftovers all week long. Fair warning...I rarely measure when I cook so I'm not even going to attempt to tell you all how much I used of each ingredient.
What you'll need:
Cooked pasta (in this large batch, I use a pound of spaghetti).
Cooked Meatballs (recipe below)
- Ground Beef (for the best meatballs, mix in some ground turkey and Italian sausage too; about 2 lbs total!)
- Eggs (I use 1 egg/lb of meat)
- Bread crumbs
- Salt and Pepper
- Garlic (1-2 cloves/pound of meat)
- Onions (yellow-1/2 large onion/lb of meat)
- Combine all and form balls. Brown in skillet, then cook fully in a covered baking dish at 375. I like to cook mine on a rack, but that's not necessary.
In a large baking dish, put down a layer of cooked spaghetti, just enough to cover the bottom. Add meatballs and cheeses. (below is the only picture I managed to snap)
garlic bread! Yes, that's another Paul Deen recipe. Can you tell I'm super excited for my upcoming trip to Savannah? Stay tuned the next week and a half for more Paula-inspired meals!
So now it's time to link up all your fantastic dishes. (Yes, I'm aware I posted this a day early, but it happens sometimes)
