Happiness Is A Bowl Full Of Spaghetti

For as long as I can remember, Friday night has been pasta night in our house. I think it's because it's one of those dinners that you can usually have on the table in under 30 minutes, and after a long week of work and stress, who needs to start the weekend off with dinner stress? Not me! If it's not fettuccine, then more than likely we're serving up spaghetti around here. I'm a bit embarrassed to admit though, I usually use a jarred pasta sauce to save time. I know, there's nothing quite like homemade, but when you're tired sometimes it's just okay to use jarred and be done with it. I did recently find a tempting looking Spaghetti & Meatballs recipe on Golden Blossom Honey that didn't look like it was going to require a lot of effort, so last week I added it into our meal plan. 

Spaghetti and Meatballs

The sauce is quick and easy to prepare and if you use store bought meatballs, you save even more time. If you would like a yummy vegetarian version, check out my vegetarian meatball recipe (to be used in this recipe without the glaze).  My teen is a super picky eater and doesn't like change, but she was all over this recipe and has requested that we make it again real soon. 

Ingredients
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup onion, chopped
3 large cloves garlic, minced
2 (14.5 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 cup dry red wine
1 pound purchased cooked meatballs, (check the deli, meat counter or frozen section of supermarket), heated according to package directions
1/2 cup fresh basil, sliced

1 pound spaghetti, cooked according to package directions
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

  1. I've just found pasta made of peanuts, veggies, buckwheat, sunflower seeds and other similar things in my healthy food store. I usually buy pea flakes and millet flakes there and all my seeds.

    I wonder when will you exhaust all your basil supplies :) I sometimes imagine you have a forest of it in your backyard LOL

    1. I think there's a lentil pasta here that I want to try. I have been reading a book about foods that cause inflammation and she says that peanuts is one of the 7 foods you should eliminate from your diet, so I've been trying to steer clear of them for the time being, though pasta made from it does sound interesting.

      Jason just said the same thing about my basil, telling me I have more than I need. Whatever is left at the end of the season, I'll use to make a big jar of pesto.

  3. We try to do with less pasta because of the gluten. Travis dislikes gluten free noodles. It is good! I don't remember when the last time I had spaghetti was. I like it though!

    1. I haven't tried gluten free noodles yet, but I did try gluten free bread and didn't like it. I am going to try the noodles made from lentils when we get back from vacation because I'm working on cutting the gluten from our diets too.

  4. Nothing makes you feel more warm and cozy inside that a big plate of spaghetti. I make spaghetti and meatballs all the time for my family, and it's a favorite. I can't wait to try this recipe.

  6. We have pasta a couple of times a week. I know a few people that use sugar in their sauce, I've never tried any made with honey in it.

  9. Nothing reminds me more of childhood than a great plate of spaghetti and meatballs! OM NOM NOM NOM! Yes, Please! I have not tried adding honey to my sauce, but I always have golden blossom in stock so I will give this a try!

  10. My husband talks about spaghetti non-stop and so for him, happiness really is a bowl full of pasta! This recipe looks absolutely delicious!

  11. We have at least one pasta night a week and I agree, using sauce in a jar isn't such a bad thing when time is an issue. I love a sauce with a touch of sweetness and this recipe using the Golden Blossom Honey would definitely fit the bit. It looks delicious!

    We just had pasta yesterday (Fridays are our Pizza/Pasta day) and I missed this recipe! This would go on our menu plan for Friday next week. I am curious about having to add some honey in the pasta sauce.
