Spaghetti and Meatball Night

The kids don't like food to touch each other so we serve everything "family style"......

Ingredients for meatballs

Ingredients for Meatballs:
2 pounds ground meat (I used lamb)
1 egg
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon each salt and pepper
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

Sliced mushrooms

Combine all meatball ingredients

Use an ice cream scoop and portion out meatballs - I made 20 out of 2 pounds of ground meat

Gently shape into balls

Start simmering tomato/pasta sauce

Fry meatballs in a bit of olive oil until brown

Place browned meatballs on a rack and keep warm in the oven

Add meatballs to simmering sauce and cook through - place in a serving dish

In the meantime, cook pasta and saute mushrooms.  Serve with shredded Parmesan cheese.
