This one’s real easy. After New Year’s Eve, we found that we had far too much in the way of the teriyaki meatballs I had made in my slow-cooker, so we froze half of them. Keep in mind that they are not great if you’re trying to watch your sugar intake. But hey, when you’re looking for a really fast meal and you have leftovers in the freezer, you use what you have on-hand!
I won’t even hide this one behind a ‘read more’ link because it’s pretty short and sweet.
- 2 portions whole wheat pasta of your choosing
- 1-2 Tbsp chopped red onion
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 10 frozen leftover teriyaki/Swedish/Hawaiian meatballs w/sauce
- 1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth or water
- 2 green onions, sliced and divided
- In a small saucepan over a medium heat, saute red onions in the olive oil for a few minutes until softened.
- Add frozen meatballs and broth or water. Cook for a few minutes until meatballs are heated through.
- Allow to bubble away until sauce begins to thicken. Add half of the green onions and stir.
- Divide in half and serve over two portions of pasta, topping with the remainder of the green onions.
Sorry, I have no nutritional values on this right now, but man, this was very, very yummy. 😉
