Chicken Meatballs and Pasta Rosé adds a touch of elegance to everyday spaghetti and meatballs. Sicilian Chicken with Tomato, Basil & Garlic #Mcskilletsauce makes it easy!
I love pasta and meatballs any day of the week. Beef, turkey, chicken or a meatloaf mix with beef, pork and veal all make great meatballs.
Sometimes I get to be a stickler when it comes to sauce. It needs to satisfy what I’m craving. A good tomato based sauce like McCormick’s Sicilian Chicken with Tomato, Basil & Garlic is a great place to start!
This sauce has all the good stuff that I put in my own sauce without spending hours of cooking time to achieve.
It is so easy to use straight out of the package. Notice how convenient the sauce is packaged. I can stand them upright on my pantry shelf or lay down on its side to save space without worrying about glass breakage or leaks.
The best meals start with the best ingredients.
Start your pasta and while it cooks, make your meatballs. Mix together ground chicken, onion, celery flakes, basil, 3 Tablespoons Parmesan.
Form into mini meatballs. (18 to 20) Meatballs will be slightly sticky.
Heat the oil in your skillet over medium- high heat. Add meatballs and turn to coat meatballs with oil. Fry over medium heat, turning often to brown on all sides. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until thoroughly cooked. Too dry? Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water to help steam meatballs if necessary.
Add pasta, McCormick sauce and half and half or milk. Heat thoroughly and serve.
