Meatballs and Pasta

Remember my post wayyyy back on August 10 (Sunday Food and Fun) where I made meatballs and froze them??  Well yesterday was a busy day and the perfect time to pull them out of the freezer, throw them in the crockpot and heat them with sauce for dinner.

I freeze meatballs in batches of 15 so I always have a couple bags going in the freezer for busy nights and sometimes even for a quick meatball hoagie for lunch.

I think of this dish as the ultimate comfort food and luckily there was enough left over for tonight’s dinner 🙂

My Meatball recipe: (there are pictures in the link above to the Sunday post)

1 lb ground beef, 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs, 1 Tablespoon minced garlic, 1 egg, 1/4 cup milk.  Combine all and roll into balls.  Brown in a frying pan and bake for about 25 minutes in the oven until cooked through.  Let cool and freeze until ready to use.
