Recipe type: Main Dishes
  • Chicken meatballs:
  • 2 pounds ground chicken
  • 2 Eggs
  • ¾ Cup Italian Style Breadcrumbs
  • 1 Tbsp. Garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. Onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp. Dill weed
  • 1 tsp. Paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. Sour Cream
  • 1 Tbsp. Whipped Cream cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • dash of salt and pepper
  • Creamy Tomato Sauce:
  • 1 Cup favorite Pasta sauce
  • 1 Cup Tuscany flavor Chicken Broth
  • ½ Cup Half & Half cream
  • 1 Tbsp. Cornstarch
  • ½ large onion, sliced
  • Packaged Mushrooms, sliced
  • 8 oz. Bag of Spinach
  1. In a Large bowl, mix all of the ingredients for the Meatballs. Wet your hands and shape the meatballs. Place on the foil or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake in the preheated at 400F oven for 20 - 25 minutes, depending on your oven and the size of your meatballs.
  2. To make the sauce, add Olive oil to a deep sauce pan. Sauté sliced onions and mushrooms until they begin to brown. Add tablespoon of cornstarch and stir. Stir in pasta sauce, broth and cream. Adjust the flavor.
  3. Add the spinach and cook, stirring occasionally until the spinach is completely wilted.
  4. When meatballs are ready, add to the pan and let them simmer in the sauce for 5 minutes.
  5. Cook pasta separately according to the instructions on the package. I Love Fancy pasta shapes that you can buy at Marshalls, TJ Maxx or the HomeGoods!
  6. Or serve over potatoes or buckwheat, another favorite.
If you like more sauce, just double the ingredients.
