This is a great pasta dish to throw together when you’re in the mood for a hearty dish. You can always go bigger, and add some cheese if you’d like. It’s really easy to throw together. You can prepare a big batch and freeze some to use over the winter.
There are lots of variations to this classic dish. For example, you could make it with chopped meat and cooked pasta, or add some cooked pasta and some meat.
I have made this dish a few times in the past, but I have not tried it with other types of meat. I know the recipe says use beef or pork, but I have a hard time finding beef in the meat section of my supermarket.
I usually make the dish with a bit of leftover meat from last week’s meal. I usually use a combo of whole wheat spaghetti and raw ground beef, or something with a good lean meat. This week, I have a bit of leftover lasagna from last night’s dinner. So, I used the lasagna to cook the pasta, and the leftover meat to make the meatballs.
Now that you have a few meatballs in the fridge, it would seem that you have pasta leftovers to make meatballs with. So it stands to reason that after the meatballs are made, you could make the meatballs, without the whole lasagna, with leftover pasta. This way you get a big bowl of meatballs with a plate of leftover pasta on the side.
It’s a bit strange, but it’s also kind of awesome. You could just slice open a huge bowl of lasagna, dump it in a pan, and then let it cook while you throw spaghetti in after. Or you could cook the meatball noodles and pasta at the same time.
I know what your thinking. It sounds like the perfect party dish. But wait, you don’t have any pasta. But you can make the meatballs with leftover lasagna noodles and lasagne sauce and make them into meatballs, without the lasagna.
That’s right. You can. And it’s kind of like making pasta salad, but you can also make it with leftover pasta. It comes out just like regular salad, but you can add whatever meat you want.
The best way to eat pasta is not to eat it. You have to figure out what to do with it after you eat it. This is why I eat pasta for lunch, not dinner. With no pasta, the night I eat pasta, I’m left with a crumbled, dry, and tasteless mess of pasta. The best way to eat pasta is in the morning, when you’re still hungry.
But, that also means you need to ask yourself, “Will I starve before or after dinner?” If you need to eat something and you don’t have time to cook it, then you need to go to the store. It doesn’t have to be fancy and fancy food, it could simple stuff like pasta.
