The road to recovery…

…seemed so painful and slow. The legs were feeling better by the second day but the body continued to be under the weather. I was sniffing and coughing and having sore throat. Arghh….this was not a good feeling!

The hubs bought back nearly 3 pounds of ground beef (*faint*) yesterday and I guess we would be consuming them for the next few meals.

So it would be meatball spaghetti on the menu!

My version of meatballs = ground beef + sweet onion + thyme + egg + parmesan cheese + salt & pepper.

Cook the meatballs in a large frying pan for about 12 minutes, turning occasionally until browned on all sides. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain. Discard the oil and place the pan over medium-low heat. Pour the tomato sauce (thank God for these prepared sauces!) into the pan. Add the meatballs and cook, covered, until cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt and the pasta. Cook, stirring occassionally, until al dente, according to the package instructions. Drain and add to the sauce. Gently toss to combine. Serve with Parmesan cheese. Yummy!
