I got this recipe 10 or 15 years ago on the back of Shake n' Bake for Pork. It has been a family favorite ever since. The sauce is the best part. It is simple to make and has great flavoring. I serve it with Rice and a green vegetable.
Try something new with tonight's green breans. This is a very easy side dish and a nice change from the traditional. Top with a sprinkle of breadcrumbs if desired! Also, I double the spices when cooking for my husband.
This is a recipe that I adopted after Mean Chef (IHHDRO) left the site. His original comments were, "Add a little zest to corn. So simple and tasty." My original review stated, "Thumbs up from my hubby. He loves corn, but I don't prepare it often due to the high carb content. He was in heaven with this recipe. We served it as a side to grilled turkey mignons, grilled sweet potato slices, and a simple salad. I had been lucky to find fresh corn and loved how its sweetness contrasted with the heat of the chipotle. I am sure that he will request this recipe again." We HAVE made this again and again...both with fresh corn in season, and with frozen sweet corn. My husband does love this.
Cooking the meatballs in simmering pasta sauce will not only add so much extra flavor to the sauce the meatballs will be melt-in-your-mouth tender, you may of course oven-bake the meatballs for about 25 minutes, --- don't be afraid to add in more Parmesan cheese and a little more milk, there is no need to measure exactly, this recipe is pretty much foolproof, leftover cooked meatballs make a wonderful pizza topping just slice thinly and freeze until ready to use ----- these also make wonderful juicy burgers shaped into patties-- for more of my tried and true recipes check out my food blog at www.kittencalskitchen.com
This recipe comes from Alton Brown and it's the only way we have rice anymore. My servings are quite a bit smaller than his, though! You can use chicken or veggie broth in place of the water, or add herbs and spices.
