This easy recipe for pasta with mozzarella and turkey meatballs is a fun spin on the classic spaghetti with meatballs, and has the extra added advantage of coming together in about 20 minutes for those busy weekday nights when you know you should make dinner, but you don’t want to, but you should. If you can hang in there for those twenty minutes, you will be rewarded with a nice warm bowl of pasta with cute little meatballs, sweet cherry tomatoes and melty mozzarella, and if that isn’t incentive for spending those twenty minutes in the kitchen I don’t know what is. Let’s make it!
Who doesn’t LOVE spaghetti and meatballs? But they are such a production, right? Browning the meatballs, warming the sauce, boiling the pasta…it takes every pot in the house. Right? Actually…no. No it doesn’t. This recipe for one skillet spaghetti and meatballs makes a FABULOUS spaghetti and meatballs, but here is the beauty part…all in that one skillet. And, because everything is cooking up together, the spaghetti soaks up a lot of the gorgeous sauce and meatball flavor, so instead of one sitting on top of the other, all three components are beautifully, harmoniously, delectably, delightfully intermingled. Sounds too good to be true, right? But it IS! And I am here to tell you how to do it, without overloading your dishwasher on top of everything else.

It’s got to be their adorable little bite-sized-ness, I’m guessing. But whatever it is, my radar is perennially up for the next great way to make meatballsRead More & Get the Recipe
I love making the Southern husband his suppertime favorites. As a result, shrimp and grits are frequently on the menu, along with okra and various things made with scallops, and he’s always perfectly happy with good old fashioned burgers on the grill. But every now and again I remember that he loves beef stroganoff…and then I don’t make it. There’s something that feels so fancy and serious about it that I just can’t pull it together for a Tuesday night. And then one day it occurred to me that maybe the Tuesday night version was not the steak and mushrooms and egg noodles version. Maybe it was the meatballs and shallots and spaghetti version.
Every Saturday night the Southern husband and I have what we call The Restaurant Project. We have a long list of restaurants we want to try, and each Saturday we try a new one. We’ve kept it up for two years now (and all I can say is thank goodness for the GPS) but asRead More & Get the Recipe
