Spaghetti, Meatballs and Veggies– Spaghetti sauce, organic whole wheat pasta or alternative noodles of your choice, veggies of choice.
Homemade Spaghetti Sauce:
10 tomatoes, ½ red bell pepper, ½ yellow or orange bell, basil and/or parsley, 1 onion and 2 minced garlic cloves. Salt and pepper to taste.
Cut all ingredients in fourths and place into crock pot. Cook on low for 4 hours, high for 2 hours or until all ingredients are soft. Blend until desired consistency. Use, refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.
1 LB Grass fed beef, ground turkey or chicken, 1-2 minced garlic cloves, ¼ finely diced onions, 3 TB parsley, 1 egg and homemade breadcrumbs(optional). Salt and pepper to taste.
Mix all ingredients together until well blended together. Make 1” rounded meatballs. Cook with spaghetti sauce in crockpot on high for 2 hours, low for 3 hours or on medium on stovetop for 1 ½ hour.
I briefly saute my veggies just enough to heat, but keep them pretty raw. I chose zucchini and sliced it lengthwise. Once cooked, I cut it into pieces to serve.
