Over the next while I will be making and reviewing recipes in Jamie Oliver’s Jamie’s Food Revolution . Plan to Eat has a great challenge going on right now to plan meals around the cook book and since I already own and frankly love the cookbook, I thought I would follow along. This is also great that someone else will be making the meal plan decisions for me for the next little while.
Day 1 was Spaghetti and Meatballs (Page 149)
I loved the meatball recipe. It went together very quickly although I did use bread crumbs instead of crushed crackers. I also substituted ground chicken for ground beef. The meatballs stood up very well and cooked quickly. For the sauce the only alteration I made was to whiz it with a hand blender to make a smooth and not a chunky sauce. Personally I would have preferred the chunky but the boys in my house do not like tomato chunks. Woe is me.
