This is my version of pasta and meatballs. It has so much flavor and is more fun than what people are used to. Use a fattier minced meat so that your meatballs are not dry. If you want to save time, don’t make meatballs! Make this pasta and meat sauce. To do so, just skip the step of forming the meatballs. Add the olive oil to the pan, sear the ground meat, add the rest of the ingredients and follow the rest of the directions from when you would have added the meatballs back into the pot. And done!
Minestrone soup is so popular, here is my version of it in a meat stew form. Be sure to watch my knife skills video on how to chop all these ingredients, so it takes you no time at all!
The bold colors of this dish match the bold flavors! I love the black against the ruby red with the white! If you can’t find black quinoa you can use black rice, or regular quinoa – it will taste almost the same just not be as bold in color!
Carpaccio is an Italian word which means thinly sliced meat or fish for an appetizer. Today we are thinly slicing beets instead for this beautiful dairy vegetarian dish.
The couscous will be mushy but that is exactly what you want to it into these beautiful, colorful patties, fry free!
