Tonight I made actual spaghetti and meatballs for the first time ever. Yeah, I know. Can you believe it? It was also a combination of recipes because I seriously could not put apple in the meatballs. I just couldn't. Does that mean I created my own recipe?
Turkey Cheese Surprise Spaghetti
For the meatballs...
-1 lb. ground turkey
-1/2 cup stuffing mix
-2 T. parmesan cheese
-any other seasonings you like
-EVOO :-) Yep, EVOO. Say it.
For the noodles...
-1 pkg. whole wheat spaghetti
-2 cans diced tomatoes
Okay, so I started the noodles in a giant pot first. I garlic salt the noodles so they don't stick in the pot. When the noodles are cooked, drain and add the diced tomatoes. Stir! Chop up the basil leaves and add a little shredded mozzarella if you like.
While the noodles are cooking (just follow pkg directions), I put the EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) in a pan and let it get hot. I combined everything but the mozzarella in another bowl and then formed meatballs. Add a little chunk of mozzarella to the center of each meatball. Yum! Cook them up a few at a time and then add to the spaghetti mess. I cut one open to make sure they were cooking alright. They were.
That's a little thing I like to call Meatball Mountain. Looks pretty good, huh? :-)
