Dorm Room Dinner: Asian Spaghetti and Meatballs + a GIVEAWAY

Print Friendly and PDF
Like I mentioned on Monday, I'm participating in the Saucy Mama's Fabulous with Five recipe contest.  In the package that they were generous enough to send me was their newest sauce the Sweet Heat Marinade.  I'll be the first to tell you it is an asian-style sweet and spicy sauce that is amazing!!  After tasting it, John suggested we pair it with meat. 

Since I'd made so many asian dishes with other free products on my blog over the last few months, I wanted to use my five ingredients in a really unique way.  Also, I needed it to be SCRUMPTIOUS, not just delicious, or good. Both of us really liked this, and I liked using the asian stir-fry frozen vegetables.  That gave me a ton of vegetables with only one ingredient!  Way to get creative :) you can substitute this for any vegetables that you really like. 

Saucy Mama was also kind enough to give us a GIVEAWAY!  They will be sending my lucky winner a trio of their sauces, including the Sweet Heat Marinade.  I will have more recipes over the next few weeks so look for them.  For now, you must be a Follower through Google Friend Connect.  Leave a comment here that you are.  For an extra entry, tell me what YOU would make with this Sweet Heat Marinade if you won. You will have one full week to comment with the last day of entry being Friday, May 20, 2011 at noon Eastern Standard Time. I will use random.org to choose the winner, and Saucy Mama will send the sauces from their headquarters.
Asian Spaghetti and Meatballs
Serves:  4
1 pound of ground turkey
2 cups + 3 tablespoons Saucy Mama's Sweet Heat Marinade
2/3 cup breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
1 box of chinese stir-fry noodles (also called chow mein noodles)
2 cups frozen Asian Stir-Fry Vegetable Mix

Combine the ground turkey, 3 tablespoons of Saucy Mama's Sweet Heat Marinade, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper.  Roll into small meatballs.  In a large skillet, greased with cooking spray, cook the meatballs over medium heat for about 20 minutes, until fully cooked through.  Meanwhile, prepare the stir-fry noodles to package instructions.  And, cover the vegetables with water and place in a large saucepan until heated through.  Drain the noodles and vegetables.  Add both to the meatballs and toss with remaining Saucy Mama's Sweet Heat Marinade over low heat until fully heated through.  Serve warm.

So comment away my very loyal friends and followers!!  Note that for the recipe contest Saucy Mama provided me, free of charge, 6 sauces, as well as the 3 sauces for the giveaway.  I can win up to $1,000 for using their sauces in a 5-ingredient recipe.  But, of course, the delicious recipes are my own.

And, just can't let this post go without saying a VERY happy birthday to my wonderful sister K!  She is leaving Boston tomorrow to move-in with E in New York and I am going to miss them both terribly.  Enjoy the weekend and I'll be back on Monday with another delicious Saucy Mama dish!

Until the next time my oven is on...

  14. We make fried rice out of brown rice and veggies. I'll bet some of these wonderful sauces would spice our stir fries up more than a bit.
