COOK TIME

Remember when Italian tomato sauce used to slow-cook on Mom's stove for hours and hours? Well, here's a way to get that same satisfying, good taste - but in a jiffy!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup uncooked long-grain rice
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can whole tomatoes, broken up
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup small shell pasta

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, combine ground beef, rice, egg and pepper.  Shape the mixture into 1-inch meatballs and place on a baking sheet or a piece of wax paper; set aside.
     
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the water, onion soup mix, thyme, tomatoes, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning; bring mixture to a boil. 
    Carefully drop meatballs and shells into boiling mixture; reduce heat and simmer, covered, 25 minutes.

Notes

I sometimes like to use ground turkey or chicken for a lighter change. You can even add cut-up fresh or frozen veggies.
