Meatballs with Tomato Risoni
I’ve been trying a whole lot of recipes from the Masterchef website. Not always the ones they feature on the show, but also the ones the sponsors put up. And now that I have my own kitchen, I can cook whatever I want, and as many meatballs as I want! Om… ah nom nom nom nom!!
I had never made meatball mix with stock before. I was a little hesitant at first wondering if the mixture would even combine with liquid. But the breadcrumbs did an excellent job of soaking them up. For a mixture with not that many ingredients, it should did smell fantastic as I was rolling them into little balls of delicious-ness.
The end result, juicy, flavoursome packed meatballs, with pasta and a rich tomato sauce, all in done in less than an hour.
3. Stir in risoni & tomatoes. Cook for 8 mins, uncovered, stirring occasionally, or until pasta is al dente. Garnish with parsley & serve with steamed vegetables and parmesan.
looks so delish 🙂 will be trying this one
Mmmm, meaty, saucy and wintery! Feel like meatballs for dinner now =p

This does look very simple and truly one pot with the pasta cooked in the sauce. And very yummy you say? Well this will be on the menu at chez Sarah next week!
Welcome back Shellie! And what a delicious weather appropriate recipe to come back with. I adore risoni! 😀
Welcome back! Mhmm meatballs. Why do things taste better when shaped into balls? 😀

meatballs!!! You can never have too much.
That sounds beautiful! Just one question, would you say that store-bought beef stock works alright or does the stock have to be made from scratch?

Looks like winter is coming soon. This is such a hearty dish. I love meatballs and this way seems perfect with the pasta. The colours are just gorgeous!!!!
