Magical Meat (or meat-less) Meatballs & Herby Pasta

A *truly* good meatball is a thing of beauty. It's light, soft, has just the right amount of sear and seasoning, and can stand alone or be the best part of a pasta dish. And it can even be made vegetarian!

About the Event

I can't possibly explain what a good meatball (yep, even vegetarian) means to me. All too often, meatballs are dense, flavorless, and just plain blah. Just because the name contains "meat" and "ball" doesn't mean that there's nothing else to them. There are sooooo many things that make a magical meatball, and I can't wait to teach you all of them! 

In this class, we'll make the best beef, turkey, chicken, or meat-free meatballs , but we'll also make an herby red sauce and flawlessly cooked pasta to go with it.

In just 60 minutes, we'll...

  • use breadcrumbs to balance the texture of meatballs
  • learn how to properly season the meatball mixtue without going overboard
  • explore the magic of tomato paste in a quick red sauce 
  • learn how searing brings extra flavor to our meatballs 
  • make perfectly cooked pasta
  • have a blast with our cooking community!

So tie on your favorite apron and come make yummy things with us!  We'll have tons of fun and learn lots of culinary techniques along the way!

Class will be Thursday, April 18th from 5:30-6:30pm EST.

And, as always, this class makes use of some items from your perfect pantry ingredients!

Our recipes are all pantry-centered because we believe that having certain essential ingredients on hand is key to successful home cooking. We combine these pantry basics - whole grains, herbs, spices, and/or legumes - with a few fresh ingredients to create simple, affordable, nutritious, and delicious recipes that anyone can make.
