Spaghetti Saturday

Today was a classic lazy Saturday, which meant we were not leaving our apartment for anything. However, we still needed to eat dinner but didn’t want to put much effort in. So what’s easy to make but still delicious? Spaghetti. Always spaghetti.

The last time we had spaghetti was back in December and I had made a ton of Italian meatballs. I packaged and froze the remaining meatballs to use at a later date. Well, today was the day for those meatballs to shine. All I had to do was thaw and fry them. All in all, dinner was ready in 15-20 minutes when it looks like I spent hours.

For the sauce I chopped up some red onion and cooked it in some Malbec. After that I added in some of my favorite sauce (Newman’s Own Fire Roasted Tomato & Garlic). I also decided to make some super easy garlic knots to complete the meal.
