Our Family’s Gluten-Free
Spaghetti & Meatballs
Spaghetti and Meatballs . . . certainly a family favorite.
I grew up eating this Italian staple and even have fond memories of a 4th-grade friend spilling her whole plate of spaghetti down me at a sleepover!
When we started out gluten-free life, we were not about to give up this dish, talk about comfort food right! Changes had to be made to fit our gluten-free needs.
Making Your Own
This is our own easy and delicious, gluten-free spaghetti and meatballs, which is made often at our home. It’s the perfect recipe to double and freeze.
Meatballs are an easy travel meal. They’ve joined us on many vacations and car trips as they defrost well and offer dinner in a snap.
This gluten-free spaghetti and meatball dinner is a definite recipe to add to your family meal rotation.
Remember to cook up in a double batch and freeze one. On a busy night, you’ll have a healthy, delicious dinner in a flash.
Preparing Gluten-Free Spaghetti and Meatballs
For this recipe, you want to prepare the meatballs first.
1 lb ground turkey, small onion, diced, spices: parsley, basil & garlic, gluten-free oats, and an egg
Place everything into a large bowl and mix until well blended. I like to use a potato masher for this which mixes everything up quite nicely. (I think I may have learned that from Rachel Ray!)
Preheat oven to 375°. Prepare the baking dish – use a glass 9×13 or a jellyroll cookie sheet, brush with olive oil.
Roll the meat mixture into balls, golf ball-sized works well.
Once they are in the oven, make the sauce. They need to bake 20 minutes.
Then, rotate the pan and bake another 15 minutes.
This way, when the meatballs come out of the oven you can add them right into the sauce.
Then, just simmer away. The longer you simmer the better the flavor!
Enjoy the meatballs with your favorite gluten-free pasta (spaghetti/noodles), raw zucchini noodles, over quinoa, or on your favorite gluten-free rolls for a delicious meatball sandwich.
Enjoy a dinner with the family where your kids can enter the “clean plate club” as they clear their plates completely when eating this meal! No more worrying about what’s for dinner!
