No idea if this is traditional, but we love it. It’s quick and easy, too. Serve with garlic bread, salad, and you’re done.
For the meatballs, in a medium bowl, combine the beef, eggs, bread crumbs, onion powder, half of the basil, and half of the garlic. Form into small balls. Pan fry in a stock pot over medium high heat until golden brown on all sides.
Add carrots and onion and cook for several minutes until the vegetables are soft. Add remaining ingredients, not forgetting the remaining basil and garlic. Salt and pepper to taste. Simmer till pasta and meatballs are done, using the pasta package directions as a guideline for timing.
These chicken noodle bowls are loosely based on Pho, a dish my husband and I have been fortunate enough to enjoy at our friends’ house. They do a traditional Vietnamese recipe with beef. The dish has a flavorful beef broth, topped with fresh aromatics and vegetables.
I decided to make this version for my husband who has been sick all weekend with a terrible cold. The ginger root provides a homeopathic element to the broth.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
