My dad came home one day and told me he was going to make dinner for the family. This is pretty surprising to hear because that never happens. But he had tried a dish somebody at his work had brought in and got the recipe for it. He prepared in advance and got all his ingredients together for when he'd make his big meal. And when it was time to start, he laid out all of what he needed before him.
Your basic low down of the recipe is:
A layer of spiral pasta, then a layer of cream spinach spread. Top with some small halved meatballs and red sauce. Sprinkle some mozzarella cheese and you're done.
This dish was simple and honestly incredible. I seriously can not even begin to describe to you how delicious this was. I paired it with some garlic bread to complete the meal.
The cream cheesy spinach was out of this world. Meatballs are perfect fillers and paired with a red sauce and pasta, you've created a meal of perfection!!
Please try this. YOU MUST.
Dad's Delish Dish
*Bear with me on these ingredients. My dad could not remember exact numbers and sizes of anything! So, trust your judgment and add to taste.
Spiral noodles- enough to lightly cover a 9 x 13 pan
1 bag of frozen spinach, thawed
1 pkg of cream cheese, room temp!
1 bag of frozen meatballs, prepared as directed, halved
red sauce w/:
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
1 tablespoon dry chives
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
shredded mozzarella cheese
Prepare and cook the noodles as directed on the package. Layer your spiral noodles along the bottom of your pan. Note: You can use a dish of any size or shape as long as you adapt the other ingredients to fit it.
Cream together your cream cheese and spinach and spread over top the noodles. Place your halved meatballs over the spread with the rounded side up. Then, layer over top with your red sauce. Sprinkle some mozzarella cheese over the whole thing.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes?, or longer if it needs more. The time is really just preference because nothing needs cooked, just heated and until the cheese is melted on top.
