Sunday Supper recipe

It’s gotten too cold outside for me to run the last couple days, so I decided to warm up with some cooking! Especially after having to shovel snow when it’s a real feel of 5 degrees outside.  Yup.  FIVE. I will say, though, that I am in awe of my 16 year old who offered out of the blue to help me shovel?  WHAT?  I am still picking my jaw up off the groud. LOL!!

First, we’ll start with meatballs and spinach fettuccini (you can use whatever noodle you prefer). While I don’t make the pasta myself, I do buy fresh made from my local grocery store.  I also take a little help with the marinara sauce by letting it simmer and adding some fresh herbs, crushed red pepper flakes, and garlic to give it a little more depth.

Meatballs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1 lb. of ground pork and 1 lb. of lean ground beef

1 cup of Italian bread crumbs

1 cup of grated parmesan cheese (use fresh if possible)

1/4 cup of fresh chopped Italian parsley

pinch of salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and Italian herb mix (Approximately 1 tablespoon each, to taste)

3 eggs

1/8 cup of extra virgin olive oil

Combine all ingredients and roll in to small golf ball size balls and place on a sheet tray that has been lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Take a jar of GOOD marinara sauce (you know, the good stuff small markets make that don’t have all the added preservatives to it) and put into a wide, deep sauté pan. Turn on LOW, and let simmer.  Add in fresh herbs, garlic, and red pepper flakes and cook on low for 20 minutes.  Once the meatballs are done, add them to the sauce and let simmer for an additional 20 minutes. Cook your pasta according to package directions, and toss in your marinara sauce before serving!

Enjoy!!!!

      1. Thank you for sharing your life with me (and the internet!) I’d love to run a race with you this year! Maybe it is time for us to head to Chicago finally. 😉

  1. Yum, that looks so delicious! And I’m glad you had help with the shoveling 🙂 That is probably my least favorite part of living in a house instead of an apartment.

  2. Teenagers can indeed be full of surprises ! Good luck with your nanny / new organization.
    And I will definitely try your meatball recipe, sounds great !

  3. Yummm, I love a good spaghetti and meatball recipe!! I hope the nanny’s first day went well!!

  4. Hey this sounds easy enough I could even do it lol! Now, which one of you is the mother?? JK 🙂 The both of you are just beautiful and yes our teens will surprise us sometimes! I had a great pasta dish this past weekend it was while I was in Orlando, a chain but for the life of me I can’t remember the name, we don’t have them where I am. But it was so good! Had a white sauce base, chicken, broccoli and maybe spinach too. Thanks Michelle!

  5. This sounds easy and delicious. I can’t imagine shoveling snow (never had to) let alone in 5 degree weather. It does sound like a killer workout. Those teens can be so sweet when they want to be. ;). Thanks for linking Michelle.
