Chicken Meatball Pasta

Happy Wednesday!

Chicken Meatball 

I originally saw this recipe on Dashing Dish as a yummy hamburger

1 lb ground chicken

1/2 pack of Spicy Ranch dry dressing packet

1/4 cup salsa

1/4 cup chopped spinach

1/4 cup Pepper Jack Cheese

Olive Oil Sauce

1/2 cup olive oil

3 cloves garlic

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 tbsp pasta water

1 tbsp butter


1. In a bowl mix (with your hands) chicken, ranch packet, salsa, spinach and cheese. Form into small meatball sized balls, place on foil lined cookie sheet and bake at 425 for 20 minutes- turning about halfway through.

2. While meatballs are cooking cook pasta according to directions, remembering to reserve 2 tablespoons of cooked pasta water for olive oil sauce.

3. In a skillet heat olive oil, and garlic until garlic is browned. Add red pepper flakes, S&P and pasta water. When pasta is cooked add to sauce with meatballs and toss. ** I added some spinach by putting the spinach in a colander and draining pasta over the top.
