Did you develop up consuming pasta out of a can? I certainly did and I LOVED it. Our pantry would at all times have an abundance of 2-for-1 on sale cans of the saucy stuff and I might warmth one up each time I felt like a snack. I miss my child’s metabolism…I can’t imagine I used to eat cans of pasta as a snack! If solely my snacks now had been the snacks of my youth…I might be so completely satisfied.
Anyway, snacks apart I nonetheless love a tiny pasta and mini meatball as a result of they’re spoonable, and who doesn’t love spoonable meals that you simply eat out of a bowl? Do you know that SpaghettiOs had been apparently invented as a result of again within the day they thought that children didn’t know the best way to eat lengthy pasta neatly? It additionally had one thing to do with the truth that small pasta retains it’s texture higher in a can. Doesn’t actually matter to me however I do admit there’s one thing enjoyable about spooning up pasta. It appears much more environmentally friendly in some way.
As enjoyable as spooning is, this recipe nearly didn’t occur though I’ve been desirous to make homemade spaghetti eternally. Like so many different concepts I simply by no means obtained around it. Fortunately (or possibly unluckily) these guys obtained made due to a failed experiment. I had a bunch of mini meatballs in tomato sauce as a result of I wished to create a bread dice filled with spaghetti and mini meatballs. The bread dice didn’t fairly work out (I didn’t sauce the spaghetti
sufficient) however, the mini meatballs in sauce turned out to be so scrumptious that they needed to be blended up with mini rings.
These iconic spaghetti mini rings are literally not that simple to seek out. We had some Anelli pasta within the pantry, however, it was the type that had to reduce edges as a substitute of these clean rings you discover in a can. I imply, they labored, however, had I had time to plan upfront I might have scoured the web for these clean rings. Style-wise they had been virtually identical besides once you make pasta at the house it invariably finally ends up extra al dente from pasta in a can.
Candy and barely tangy tomato sauce, tender lil meatballs, and spoonable scoopable pasta. This was a satisfying style of nostalgia and I might completely do it once more though shaping these little meatballs was an ache within the butt!
