Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Instructions

  1. Mix together ingredients for meatballs in a bowl.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F.
  3. Grease an 8 hole muffin tin.
  4. Use an ice cream scoop to divide out meatball mix and drop into muffin pan.
  5. Bake meatballs, for 35 minutes or until inside reaches 160F on an instant read thermometer.
  6. Drain meatballs on a cookie rack.
  7. Heat marinara sauce and cook spaghetti and rice noodles (separately) according to package directions.
  8. Drain pasta, keep spaghetti warm and cool rice noodles in cold water then drain.
  9. Slice meatballs in half horizontally to make two pieces, each with a flat surface.
  10. Pat rice noodles dry with paper toweling and layer over the top of the meatball, tucking sliced olives in for eyes.
  11. It is best to let the meatballs sit still for about 15 minutes so they become more tacky and hold together better.
  12. But since they will get cold, microwave them on a microwave-safe plate for a minute, then carefully place a mummy meatball onto a nest of sauced spaghetti and serve.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you prefer lean meat but want to switch it up, try ground turkey, pork, or even bison!

  • The great thing about parmesan cheese is that a little goes a long way, especially if you're buying the real deal.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a brand of gluten-free breadcrumbs.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

Price Tips

  • The price of ground beef is going up. Beans and lentils, on the other hand, are both cheap and filling. Depending on the recipe, you might be able to add beans or lentils to stretch out your beef.

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

Cooking Tips

  • Make sure you cook ground meat thoroughly. Grinding meat creates a lot of surface area that bacteria can grow on, so eating undercooked ground meat poses a real health risk.

  • If parmesan plays a big role in the flavor of your dish (or if you're a serious foodie or serious about avoiding additivies) it might be worth your time to track down "true" parmesan, Parmigiano Reggiano.

  • The best method for cooking pasta is pretty controversial, but most sources seem to reach a consensus. Check out our lesson on how to cook pasta in the academy.

Green Tips

  • Parmesan cheese is traditionally made using rennet, an animal-derived enzyme. For this reason, true parmesan cheese is not suitable for vegetarians. You might be able to find a vegetarian hard cheese to substitute.

  • Choose organic, grassfed beef whenever possible. If you're worried about your grocery budget, try eating a few vegetarian meals so you can afford better meat!

  • Some types of noodles (fettuccine, pappardelle, tagliatelle, etc.) are often made with eggs. Be sure to check the ingredient list if you're following a vegan or egg-free diet.
