Meatball Marinara with Tortellini

20120206-213606.jpg

Since I already had my meatballs, making something with them was easy. I had some spinach cheese tortalini, garlic and a can of plum tomatoes and dinner was served!

  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • Italian Herb Blend (I used my homemade but store bought is good)
  • pinch of salt and pepper, cayenne if you like a little spice
  • 1 large can of plum tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • Meatballs
  • Pasta of your choice

First I chopped the garlic and added it to a small sauce pan with the olive oil and sauteed the garlic.  I added my herb blend (which is rosemary, sage, oregano and a hint of mint), you can use Italian Seasonings or get creative here.

Cook this for a minute or two and add the plum tomatoes.  Break them up with a wooden spoon while cooking and stir in about a half cup of water.  Add salt, pepper, cayenne. Once this starts to get a boil on, reduce the heat to medium and add the meat balls so that they heat up and flavor your sauce a little.  Cook for about 10 minutes and toss with pasta.
