Spaghetti and Meatballs




Meatballs and Spaghetti:

Last few days, I was scrambling around, to use up all the leftovers from my pantry. I was left scratching my head for a while with a box of spaghetti! Then realized, I could just make the Meatballs and Spaghetti, my long time due. Although I have fermented this recipe for a while...clearly wanted it, in my own way. Yes, that's right you guessed it 'Chicken'. I was hesitant for one thing because, 'really skeptical to pair the chicken koftas with spaghetti and still call it an Italian dish'!!! But I figured it would be okay since it can be whipped in minutes and I have already made the koftas, anyway.

Ingredients:

Spaghetti 1 fistful sticks
Chicken Kofta
or
Veggie Kofta
Marinara sauce/spaghetti sauce
Parmesan cheese.

Method:

Boil water with right amount of salt. Immerse the spaghetti completely...cook till tender. Now wash this several times in cold water. Retain in a colander.

In a wide wok, heat few spoons of olive oil. Add the veg-balls or meat balls...saute for few minutes. Add the marinara sauce...bring this to real hot.

Now stir-in the cooked spaghetti and stir-fry over high...let the sauce coat well to all the sides.

Serve warm, garnish with cheese. Enjoy.
