Meatball Pesto Pasta

My go-to “I don’t want to cook” dinner. 4 simple ingredients: pasta, pesto, meatballs and parmesan cheese. I had a tomato I needed to use, so I chopped that up and tossed it in too.

Sweet & Sour Pork Meatballs

Day 34 of my #PantryChallenge Dinner tonight is Sweet & Sour Meatballs over farfalle pasta!

You can, of course, use bottled sweet andContinue reading “Sweet & Sour Pork Meatballs”
