Easy Pasta Meatballs are definitely not your usual meatballs, but they'll get just as many raves. Try them for a change.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup pastina, acini de pepe or other small shaped pasta
  • 1 pound ground turkey or veal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 medium-sized onion, finely chopped
  • 1 (28- to 29-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 cup water

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil then coat foil with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except spaghetti sauce and water. Form mixture into 24 golf ball-sized meatballs and place on prepared baking sheet.
     
  3. Bake meatballs for 8 to 10 minutes, or until brown, then immediately spoon them into a 2-quart casserole dish. In another large bowl, combine spaghetti sauce and water; pour over meatballs.
     
  4. Cover casserole and bake 30 to 40 minutes, turning meatballs occasionally.
     

Note

Serve these meatballs as an hors d'oeuvre, or over cooked pasta as a main dish.
