Spaghetti & Meatballs Dinner for Two

Spaghetti & Meatballs Dinner for Two

Prep time: 15-20 minutes

Everyone and their nonna has their own way of doing this Italian-American classic. Ours involves tender beef & ricotta meatballs laced with nutmeg, fresh spaghetti from our friends at Deano’s, and a savory tomato sugo spiked with garlic, basil & fennel. Buon appetito, Fam!

In your bag

  • Fresh spaghetti (from Deano’s in Somerville, MA!)
  • 6 beef & ricotta meatballs
  • Tomato Sugo
  • Garlic focaccia
  • Grated Parmesan

At home

  • Casserole dish & aluminum foil OR microwave-safe dish
  • Large pot & strainer
  • Tongs

The Meatballs & Tomato Sugo

Oven option:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Place the meatballs in a casserole dish with about ½ of the tomato sugo poured over top. 
  2. Cover the casserole dish with foil and heat for 15 minutes or until meatballs are warmed to your liking.

Microwave option:

  1. Add meatballs to a microwave-safe dish and pour about ½ of the tomato sugo on top. Cover & microwave until warmed to your liking.

The Spaghetti & Tomato Sugo

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil (the amount depends on how much water–we recommend a tablespoon per gallon).
  2. Drop in the spaghetti, stir, and cook for ~2-3 minutes. Test a strand for doneness. (We like it al dente, with a little chew!)
  3. Reserve about ½ cup pasta water and strain. 
  4. Add your spaghetti back into the emptied pasta pot with the rest of your sugo and set over low heat.
  5. Mix it all together for a few minutes to incorporate. If it’s looking a little thick, add a splash or two of the reserved pasta water. Give it a taste and add S&P as desired. 

The Focaccia

  1. Heat up in the oven, toaster oven, or air fryer.

Use tongs to grab a bundle of spaghetti and twirl it into your bowl, creating a noodle nest. Pop a few meatballs on top, and garnish with a sprinkling of grated Parm. Focaccia goes on the side!

Freezing for later? Toss wrapped focaccia & containers of pasta, meatballs and sauce in the freezer– when you’re ready, pop them in the fridge for 24 hours (or until thawed) & follow steps above!

That’s it! #Dinnersolved, dinner served.
