This weekend I was looking in the fridge for what to make, and saw some hamburgers, but realized I didn’t want to make hamburgers. SO, I pulled my new Rachel Ray Everyone is Italian on Sunday cook book and turned to the homemade meatball recipe & got to work! I rarely follow recipes to a tea, but I used this Rachel Ray recipe as a guide as to what to add to my own concoction.
I had some Trader Joe’s Tuscan Bread, which is my all time fave, and I started crumbling 3 pieces up into a bowl. After that I mixed in an egg, chopped yellow onion, salt, pepper, parsley, garlic, and cayenne pepper for a slight heat. As you can see I mixed it into a ball below, and then used a spoon to make individual meatballs, and sprinkled flour over each before popping them into the over at 400 for about 15 minutes.
I made some spaghetti, and used my favorite Trader Joe’s Tomato Basil Pasta Sauce. I typically make my own sauce, but this was an off night for me, so it was helpful to just grab this and use it for a quick meal!
