What I Cooked Today...

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Can't go wrong with this traditional favorite.


Chicken and Noodle Soup

Simple. Delicious.

Spaghetti and Meatballs

1 lb spaghetti noodles
8 ounces ground beef
2 cups really good tomato sauce
1/2 yellow onion diced
3 cloves garlic
1 tbsp parsley flakes
2 cups chicken stock

Boil a pot of water, and add salt to the water! In a sauté pan, cook the onions with a little bit of oil. Add a dash of salt and pepper. Set aside to cool. In a large mixing bowl add ground beef, cooled onions, a cup of the tomato sauce, garlic, parsley flakes and salt and pepper. Roll into balls and set aside.

Simmer 2 cups of chicken stock, and drop meatballs into chicken stock. Cook through.

Boil spaghetti until it is al dente, which means "to the tooth." The pasta should not be overly soft. Add tomato sauce to the top and place meatballs on for garnish. Top with cheese right before serving.

Happy Cooking!
