Spaghetti and Meatballs

1 lb of 80% beef
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup seasoned panko bread crumbs
1 egg
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
salt and fresh pepper

Preheat oven to 400°.

Place garlic and parsley into a small food processor or chopper and pulse a few times until finely minced.

In a large bowl combine beef turkey, chopped herbs, bread crumbs, egg,  salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix well and measure 1/4 cup meat, then divide in two so you end up with each meatball 1/8 cup in size. Roll and place on a baking pan.


On top of spaghetti, all cover with cheese. I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed….. Nobody sneezed on these meat balls, don’t worry. :)

These meatballs were so so, I saw on that she had mad turkey meatballs. I kind of followed the recipe and made Italian meatballs instead. Changed up the ingredients a bit. Ben thought in order to make these meatballs tastier, they could have cooked in the tomato sauce for awhile.

The pasta sauce wasn’t anything fancy. Just a jar of roasted garlic Ragu sauce. Did you ever see the episode of Everybody Loves Raymond where the Mom told everybody that her secret was a jar of store bought marinara sauce? Well, that’s my secret too. Guess it’s out now. :P

Everyone goes into the pool.

Then get’s rolled up into a ball. I can’t believe my new lens took this picture with flash on. I think it looks way better than the one I tried taking using my light studio.

These are the finished meatballs taken with my light studio. I don’t know which picture I like better.
