Saucy meatballs revisited

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Recipes and Food

Here’s the irony of dinnertime at this time of year: I am less inclined to cook and more inclined to eat. I blame short days and chilly temperatures! This recipe was one of our dinners this week, and I wanted to share it here because the girls were pretty excited about it. So was I, because it makes great leftovers for lunch the next day:

November 18 #dailylunches - saucy meatballs

Confession: it’s not a recipe per se, it’s an assemblage (which you must read in a French accent) because it only requires four ingredients and very little Actual Cooking. Here’s the recipe. I should mention that we made it with pre-made chicken meatballs this time around, but you can make it with vegan/vegetarian meatballs too.

We serve it with fresh bread and a big salad, but I heated ’em up and poured it over leftover buttered noodles for lunch. YUM.

It’s a really good dish to serve when schedules are full and time is short. It’s also a good one to bring to a Christmas potluck. That’s where we first encountered these saucy little things, and we’ve made them many times since.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
