Why old fashioned Italian meatballs might become your most popular dish?
In the world of million meatballs recipes, my favorite is definitely the Old fashioned Italian meatballs!
Why? Well, there are several reasons, but let’s just name a few:
They are juicy, delicate, versatile and super easy to make.
In Italy, meatballs are like a base of good old Italian home cooking. Every grandma makes several types and combines them with different side dishes.
We cook them in tomatoes sauces, we bake them, we fry them, we even stuff them with cheese. You name it and for sure Italian’s have a version of it. 🙂
Canned tuna and green peas are one of my favorite fast dinners!
You know those times when you need to eat something warm, something with the spoon, something healthy and something that you can make within the 30 minutes?
Yes, for those times canned tuna and green peas are the perfect dish.
I like to add a scoop, let’s call it a big scoop of sour cream on top of this yummy dish. The sour cream will balance the sweetness of green peas and the saltiness of tuna. It will give it that perfect creamy texture also.
Plus if you overdo with salt, the sour cream or thick Greek yogurt will southe that and give it that perfect kick of acidity too.
Today I’m going to teach you how to make a Pasta fazool – the traditional Italian pasta and beans dish, also often called pasta fagioli.
The version of this famous recipe you will be making today, of comes from Venice.
As this is not a vegetarian pasta Fagioli recipe, my dear vegetarian and vegan friends will need to exclude only bacon, and then they will be able to enjoy it fully.

Growing up we didn’t eat a lot of meat, it was kind of Sunday specials. During the week we would eat veggies, rice, pasta and combinations of the above. But Sunday, boy, that way always a feast.

Say polpette, Italian polpette 🙂
Two years ago, when I moved in with my boyfriend, we didn’t have a kitchen in our apartment. We ate all our meals prepared by my suocera (mother in law in Italian). And we ate so much food, maybe even a bit too much.
I’m saying that after I have rounded myself with extra 20 kg. It was not her fault… I simply couldn’t resist her food. Even when I was full, I would find the space for that extra bite. 🙂
