One Pot Spaghetti and Meatballs with Mozzarella
(See Canadian Parents version - Mozzarella Skillet Spaghetti - here)
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 can mushrooms
1 chopped onion
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp salt
1 28-oz can diced tomatoes and juice
2 c. water
1/2 375g box whole wheat spaghetti
~20 leftover meatballs (or use PC Blue Menu Turkey meatballs)
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 c. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 c low fat cheddar grated
- Over medium-high heat, combine garlic, mushrooms, onion and seasonings in a skillet. Add a drop of olive oil if required. Stir and cook about 5 min or until onion has softened.
- Stir in diced tomatoes with their juice, water and spaghetti (break it to fit easily in the pot). Bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat, cover and simmer until pasta is tender - about 15 min. Add meatballs for last 5 minutes.
- Add vinegar and cheeses. Stir until cheese is melted and meatballs are heated through.
How the kids can help: measure and pour ingredients; break spaghetti; stir mixture in final step (older kids - careful!)
