Look at that big pot of tastiness. They simmered for about 2 hours while I did some odds and ends and spent some time with my horse. Since Thursday is my long day at school, and I needed to go for a run after that, I didn't get to start the meatballs til 6. By the time they were done, I was pretty hungry! They certainly did not disappoint...I had to go back for seconds!
For the sauce, I used about 1 jar of Prego HeartSmart Mushroom and about 1/2 jar of Kroger Alfredo. It filled a 2 qt saucepan about half way. For the meatballs, I mixed together a little bit of mustard, 1 egg, some breadcrumbs, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, and turmeric. I used 1 lb 93% lean ground beef.
I let the sauce heat up while I was mixing and rolling the meatballs. Then I dropped the meatballs in the sauce. When it started bubbling, I lowered the heat and propped a lid on top to contain the splashing.
Simmer for about 2 hours and then eat up!
Tonight's dinner was rigatoni, meatballs, and a glass of merlot.
A wonderful trio.
