Meatballs and bowties

Meatballs and bowties

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!

This dish is so quick but has a depth of flavor. Even people who don’t typically like ‘curry’ flavors will like this because, the cauliflower calms the flavors and the honey gives it a sweet depth.

If you are a cilantro hater, make this anyways and just leave out the cilantro! If you are a cilantro lover, you don’t even need to remove the cilantro from its stems, just roughly chop it at the top part and embrace the stems!

Grilled chicken with mango chutney

Grilled chicken with mango chutney

This is the quickest way to make caramelized onions and it is just so unique and flavorful, it tastes like it took hours to make. If you want to make this even quicker, saute the chicken first in the saute pan (instead of a separate grill pan) and then add a few tablespoons of water and use a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan (scraping up all the brown bits) then add the onions and proceed with regular recipe! (it will taste almost the same but you just won’t get those beautiful grill marks.
