For Father’s Day I made an easy and delicious pasta dish we’ve really come to enjoy around here. My photos of it were terrible and it really is delicious so here’s the image from The Food Network that seduced me into making it.
You can find the recipe here. Or, if you’re too lazy to click, follow along below. Totally delish and quick. Excellent when you have alot on your mind.
I used frozen meatballs myself. What? I just said I was lazy.
Meanwhile, roll the sausage meat into about 20 small meatballs. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
Pour off any drippings from the skillet, then add the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil, the garlic, red pepper flakes and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring, 1 minute. Add the pasta, broccolini and meatballs. Whisk the egg with the reserved cooking water in a small bowl, then add to the skillet and stir until the sauce thickens slightly. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide the pasta among bowls. Sprinkle with the cheese and drizzle with olive oil.
