Everyone’s had spaghetti and meatballs, but have you ever had Spaghetti *IN* Meatballs?

On this week’s episode of Dishing on Movies, Dale and I make these delicious spaghetti inside meatballs for the new feature film release of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.

Here are a few of my meatball making tips not in the video:

  1. Make sure your meat is room temperature:  It’s more malleable at this state.
  2. Make sure you freeze the noodles:  It helps stuffing the meatballs.  If you’re not feeling up to that, you can also cram loose noodles in there (I’ve tried it and it works!)  It’s not as pretty, and the meatballs end up a little bigger, but it totally works!
  3. Baking the meatballs in the oven helps you “Set it and forget it” :  however, you can saute on the stove top (be gentle) or even simmer and slow cook in a pot of marinara until the meatballs are fully cooked (about 45 minus)

 

Go make these meatballs and sneak them into #Cloudy2:  It beats $8 popcorn.
