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 is a dairy-free and nearly fat-free recipe. It tastes so good and so unhealthy.
If you don’t have chicken or vegetable stock, you can use water, just be sure there is enough salt to bring out the flavor of the vegetables. Adding basil here is not for garnish, it is for flavor. The sharpness of the basil will pair well with the sweet and simple flavors of the soup.
Burgers without buns are the new thing. They don’t need buns to fill you up and you get to taste the unique flavors of the burger and onions without soggy bread getting in the way. And on a side note, it is much healthier! Enjoy these Moroccan/Indian spiced burgers and you will never buy burgers from takeout ever again!
Brussels sprouts are so hard to find in Israel, but when you do, it is important to make them right! You will have some olive oil left over after roasting the garlic, make sure to use it for your next salad dressing!
