Spaghetti and Chicken Meatballs

Just a little twist on an all-time classic!

I’m always searching for ways to enjoy my favorite dishes with consideration of my dietary needs. Gluten free noodles is definitely a staple in my pantry so I can enjoy pastas with less discomfort.

Typically, jarred pasta sauce is filled with wheat and other fillers, along with sugars and various ingredients I can’t pronounce, so I usually have to revert to making my own. I was excited to find the Vero Gusto By Barilla Pasta Sauce that includes all-natural, simple ingredients. Homemade doesn’t mean every element of the dish has to be scratch made! Of course I add my own razzle-dazzle with fresh basil, chopped garlic, and cayenne.

As a change up to standard beef meatballs, I opt for ground chicken meatballs filled with Cajun and Italian seasonings. To hold them together I use ground brown rice flour instead of bread crumbs, as gluten free alternative. Be sure to add in a egg to maintain moisture in the meatballs as they cook.
