ingredients

directions

  • Pasta: In a large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente. Drain and lightly oil if they have to wait. Set aside.
  • Meatballs: Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix all ingredients, except flour. Add salt and pepper.
  • On a baking sheet, pour the flour.
  • With lightly oiled hands, shape each meatball with 1 tablespoon of meat mixture. Put on the baking sheet, then flour them.
  • In the same saucepan or in a large skillet, brown the meatballs in oil. Add stock and cream. Bring to boil and let simmer slowly until meatballs are cooked through. Put the pasta back in the saucepan and add cheese. Stir well and reheat. Adjust seasoning. Add more chicken stock if needed.
  • Serve and sprinkle with basil.

    Made fresh pesto and ground my chicken so this took a while but was soooo good. Loved it and will make it many times again. Served with Recipe #225571.

    This recipe was amazing. Loved the flavor. Very unique. Love pesto! I added chopped onions to my meatballs to help keep them tender. I also made to sure to cook them all the way before I added chicken broth. I did not add the spaghetti to the sauce. I let people add their own sauce on top of the thin spaghetti. We used ground turkey. Next time I will be doubling the sauce for sure. Thanks so much :)
