Italian Meatballs - Recipe

One of the biggest pains is getting stains in plastic...well, maybe not the biggest, but you catch my drift. It's a nuisance to buy brand new Tupperware, only to heat up yesterdays left-over spaghetti and have it stain the container. White plastic bowls are the worst! My kids love spaghettios, and because I do not feel the need to heat it up on the stove -or maybe I could justify it because it uses too much energy- I will heat it up in a plastic bowl in the microwave. As fate would have it, all of my plastic bowls are white. They don't usually stay white for long.

Now you are able to have some fun. You want to make one of those best beef meatballs recipes? No problem. You are already half way there. Whilst your meat is browning, simply defrost the onions and then add them along with the other ingredients. You have the beginning of Chili con carne, a Beef and Noodle Casserole or a slow cooker italian meatballs Goulash.

Puerto Rican Casserole: 1 lb. hamburger, unseasoned pork meatballs or a combination of both; 1 onion, cut in rings; 15 black olives, halved; 4 carrots, cleaned and cut into slices; 2 stalks celery, sliced; 1 small can mushroom stems and pieces plus juice; 1/2 large green pepper, cut in chunks; 1 tsp. dried basil; 1/2 tsp, cumin; 1/2 tsp. garlic salt; 4 tomatoes (fresh or canned); 3 strips bacon, cooked and broken into bits. Brown meat. Add fresh vegetables except tomatoes. Add spices and cook over medium to low heat until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add remaining ingredients and heat through. Serve over rice or spaghetti.

I found out that Libby's Spaghetti & italian meatballs has many large meatballs in their product. That was a nice discovery. The spaghetti noodles are very long and thick. There is quite a bit of tomato sauce in this dish, perhaps a bit too much and I noticed that the sauce did overpower the amount of noodles. This product is perfect for microwave cooking and that is how I chose to prepare it. I only had to empty the contents of the can into a microwave safe bowl, cover and cook on high for a few minutes. This dish smelled very good. It looked great! I did stir it well before serving.

Scalloped Ham and Cabbage: 1 1/2 cups cubed ham; 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese; 3 tbsp. chopped onion; 3 tbsp. chopped parsley; 1 quart barely cooked and drained cabbage. To make a thick, white sauce, melt 6 tablespoons butter in a heavy skillet. Add 6 tbsp. flour and cook, stirring constantly until bubbly. Add 1 1/2 cup milk all at once, stirring with a wire whisk constantly as you add the milk. Continue cooking and stirring until bubbly and thickened. Season as desired. Mix white sauce with other ingredients. Bake at 400 degrees slow cooker recipes pork 45 minutes until brown on top. Sprinkle 3/4 cup cheddar on top, return to oven until cheese melts.
