Gluten Free Spaghetti and Meatballs
Envision mounds of spaghetti, fork twirling strands in a spoon, tasty meatballs, topped with red sauce and all gluten free.
- 8 ounces of Sams Mills GF spaghetti cook according to package
- 2 1/2 cups gluten free Marinara sauce homemade or store bought
- For Meatballs:
- 1 small onion minced
- 1 teaspoon parsley
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons of ketchup
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
- ¼ cup Shar’s bread crumbs
- 1 pound ground beef
Whisk the first 7 ingredients in a large bowl to blend. Stir in the cheese and GF breadcrumbs. Mix in the beef. Shape into meatballs.
Either fry meatballs in oil and brown them well on all sides over medium-low heat, turning carefully about 10 minutes or broil, as I do, for 5 minutes on each side.
Then transfer the meatballs to sauce, cover, and simmer on the lowest heat for 25 to 30 minutes, until the meatballs are cooked through.
Serve hot over cooked GF spaghetti and pass the grated Parmesan.
