both of these were hits this week and come from giada's newest cookbook, weeknights with giada
Mini Meatball Sandwiches
Very tasty,especially on the sweet Hawaiian rolls. Just like she states: simple and fast! Mix it all into one bowl and then make meatballs. I did double the recipe since I had a whole pound of ground beef and it turned out to make plenty of meatballs plus extra for leftovers. I used a cookie scooper instead of using my hands to make the meatballs and I found that to be PERFECT because then the meatballs were flat on one side and easily stayed in the roll :) They were a hit!
Arugula,Ricotta, Mozzarella Pizza
This was my first ever homemade pizza and it was a success. It looked just like the photo too! The only changes I made were regular mozzarella cheese instead of smoked (i like smoked but i didn't find any at my local dominicks) and spinach instead of arugula (spinach was cheaper!). I really loved that the pizza dough was store bought yet it tasted like I made it myself. A fantastically easy,fast and healthy dinner! It paired nicely with a cucumber and orange pepper salad I also made.
YUM YUM YUMMMMM!
