It is finally Saurday! This has been a long week for the Sandwells and we have a busy weekend ahead of us. Rob and I have both had friends visiting from afar, a wedding to attend, his birthday to celebrate, and then just the normal work and life and stuff. I wanted comfort food. So tonight’s din was spaghetti and meatballs.
For the meatballs I used 1/2 lb of ground beef an 1/2 lb of spicy Italian sausage from our butcher. To that I added garlic, one egg, some s&p and a little tomato sauce. Mixed together in a bowl, roll into balls place in a cookie sheet baked at 375 for about 20 minutes, tonight the sausage released a little fat as it cooked so we popped them in a skillet for a hot second to brown them. Then they were perfect!
To cook the spaghetti squash you chop a large squash into two halves (just grab your sweet husband to do this, or your large kitchen machete.)
Scrap out the seedy bits and place cut side up in the micro. I like to cover it with a damp paper towel to keep it from drying out, I cook it at 6 minute intervals until its fork tender and easily scrapes into noodle form.
Then we added all the components together + one large glass of red wine. A perfect comfort meal, all super easy to make!
