Easy Spaghetti and Meatballs


Printable version
This is the third recipe in a series of everyday meals that I am creating that features store bought items mixed with fresh ingredients and pantry staples.

Here, the store bought item is frozen meatballs. I enhance the pasta sauce (which I always keep in the pantry) with some fresh onion and bell pepper, add the meatballs and let the mixture heat through. While that happens I make the spaghetti according to package directions. I always keep three or four different types of pastas in my pantry as well as a jar or two of traditional pasta sauce just for occasions like this. I will usually wait for these items to go on sale and stock the pantry accordingly.

The frozen meatballs featured here are Great Value, or WalMart brand. I was really impressed by their flavor and texture and will make this recipe again. It’s quick and easy and pretty hardy – perfect for feeding the family when time and fatigue limit dinner options.

Eat well, cook often ...
