The weather is cooler in New York and I have that yearning for heartier meals. Quick and Easy Meatballs with Tomato Sauce is a hearty dish full of flavor, and as the name states, they’re quick and easy.
The meatballs are a mixture of ground chuck, sweet Italian pork sausage and parmesan molded into bite-size balls. The zesty sauce is a combination of tomatoes, garlic and oregano.
I like to serve this dish on a weekend for brunch, as it satisfies the need for something more substantial. Keep it simple and serve with toasted bread, and if you like, a side of eggs.
Alternatively, Quick and Easy Meatballs with Tomato Sauce makes for a great dinner for the kids. They’ll love it with spaghetti. Have them help with the prep work, you might find you have a budding chef in your midst.
I used to help my mother in the kitchen a lot when I was a kid. Many times not by choice, it was a requirement in my home. My mother thought it was important that all of her children were able to fend for themselves. So I started cooking very early in life, I was eight! My siblings and I truly enjoy cooking, it can be a bit of a fight to the kitchen at times when we get together.
What I like about Quick and Easy Meatballs with Tomato Sauce is that you don’t have to have years of experience in a kitchen to be able to make this dish. All you need to do is follow the recipe and you’ll have a very tasty dish in no time.
I served my Quick and Easy Meatballs with Tomato Sauce in small individual skillets, because I have a variety of skillets in different sizes. I love those things.
Now, don’t rush out and purchase small skillets. Well, not unless you want to. A large ovenproof skillet or dish will work fine.
