MY OTHER RECIPES

Well, this dish actually came to me out of necessity. Over the summer we spent over 3 weeks on the road in our tiny travel trailer, with a tiny little kitchen.

My kids love spaghetti with meatballs, but with such a tiny space to cook, I had to get creative.

Plus I was hand washing all the dishes, so you know that’s never fun. That’s when I decided to just toss everything in one large pot and let it go.

I used some canned spaghetti sauce, cause that’s always cheap and ready to go! But I infused it with more seasoning and a can of diced tomatoes.

The pasta practically absorbs the sauce and seasonings making this dish extra flavorful without a lot of fuss!

Plus only one pan to clean, so you know this is a dish that’s going into rotation frequently.

    This will definitely make it to my kitchen in the next few weeks as school starts and my time to cook is cut down to almost nothing! I usually have everything on hand but the meatballs, so that gets added to my current grocery list. Thanks Shawn!
      1. Hi Sharon, You'll add everything (including the meatballs) to the pot at the beginning, bringing it all to a boil. This will let the frozen meatballs have time to cook through as the pasta is cooking. Enjoy!

            Mine are cooked and frozen. I also add cooked mushrooms, this is really good! Sometimes I use browned kielbasa chunks!
