Grandma’s Meatballs & Pasta Sauce

Homemade pasta sauce may take a bit of time, but besides time it’s incredibly easy to make! Stir it up, add some meatballs and let it simmer.

Grandma Snow's Meatballs & Pasta Sauce 1

Got plans this weekend? You do now! Time to make some homemade pasta sauce compliments of Bob’s Italian grandmother. For dinner one day, he pulled out his trusty family recipe-binder and whipped up a batch of his grandmother’s pasta sauce complete with some huge meatballs. The meatballs were cooked in the sauce which helps marry the flavors of the two together. Most of the sauce was then canned but some of it was served over spaghetti with the meatballs on top. The meatballs were even stuffed with gouda because, well, why the heck not?

Orange Pecan-Crusted Chicken

This oven-fried chicken is packed with flavor while remaining light on your waistline. Crispy, spicy, and citrusy. Perfect served with a spinach salad.

Orange Pecan-Crusted Chicken

Nut-crusted chicken is one of my favorite ways to prepare chicken. This obsession started when I first made this recipe with my friend Brandi years ago, pre-blogging years. While unpacking, sifting through a pile of recipes long forgotten, I rediscovered this guy and it quickly was thrown onto the menu. This time I combined it with another one of my favorite chicken-cooking techniques: oven-frying. The result? Crispy, citrusy, spicy. Serve along with a spinach salad and it’s healthy dinner time!

P.S. The Weber root beer gets special mention for being one of the best root beers I have had from my Seattle root beer shopping spree. I still need to unpack all my bottles to fill in more of my root beer collection list.

Oven-Fried Mac and Cheese Ravioli Salad

Before I get into this recipe, I just have to say that I am super stoked about Taco Bell’s breakfast menu. I don’t eat fast food very often but when I do it’s typically Taco Bell or occasionally breakfast from one of the main-stream burger joints. To join those two together is a dreamland. Admittedly, I have eaten regular Taco Bell menu items for breakfast more times than I can count but now I’ll have the option of actual breakfast food. Glory and celebration!

Now that I’ve warmed you up to atypical meal options, how do you feel about macaroni and cheese on top of a salad? Let me explain before you run away thinking I’ve lost my mind completely.

After hearing about Mac and Cheese Mania, hosted by Rachel and Brandy, I knew I had to jump on board. An entire event dedicated to carbs and cheese? Heck yea I want to participate in that celebration! As an added bonus there are prizes involved. In order to win you have to link up a mac and cheese recipe (up to 4, old or new) and link back to their pages. I already submitted an old one but decided to whip up something new for another entry. And because I’ve been trying to eat more salads O:-).

This event just so happens to be occurring at just the right time as I have been meaning to use a bag of frozen mac and cheese ravioli for quite awhile. I know you are familiar with fried ravioli, but this time I used those mac and cheese stuffed ravioli, oven-fried them, and then threw them on top of a salad! You could skip the salad and serve them as an appetizer with Ranch dipping sauce, but it’s so much more fun to put unhealthy things on top of a healthy salad because everyone knows that a salad negates anything bad you eat with it. This is science people, the science of denial.

Come join Mac and Cheese Mania at Rachel Cooks and Nutmeg Nanny sponsored by Door to Door Organics and OXO – Win prizes!
