Spaghetti with mini meatballs


I know I know… I didn’t make the meatballs from scratch but I actually sorta like the pre-made frozen meatballs and we frequently have them in the fridge for quick meals… they are easy and can be tasty.


First 1/2 of a large onion, chopped and some chopped garlic sauteing in some olive oil


Next 1/2 of a red pepper, chopped


Then 1/2 lb coarsely chopped mushrooms and one small zucchini. Everything sauteed at a relatively high heat to brown and caramelize.


about a 1/2 c of red wine – this was lovely and smooth… not complicated or amazing but very drinkable. I like the Furmanos diced tomatoes the best – they have the lowest amount of sodium of most brands out there.


some Italian season and freshly ground pepper


finally the meatballs


everything simmered with a steady bubble for about 45 minutes – I wanted to make sure that it wasn’t too watery.


And the final product, simmered down – the house smelled delicious


Served up on a pile of rice spaghetti… My Heart gave his approval – I think it’s a dish to do again!
