Spaghetti and Turkey FOOTBALLS!

Football season kicks off this week and we have been making lots of fun football snacks and dinners. The boys (and dad) got a kick out of this spaghetti with turkey footballs!

We made this using spaghetti noodles, our favorite sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese, turkey meatballs (we love this turkey meatball recipe from Giada De Laurentiis. We added 1 teaspon of minced garlic to it and they were excellent!

Mix the meatball ingredients and shape into footballs like this…
Spaghetti and Turkey FOOTBALLS!
Follow the recipe and cook them a few minutes on each side in a pan. Take the shredded cheese and make the laces and stripes on the little footballs. Place the noodles on the plate and top with the sauce. Add the footballs on very top and kind of press them into the sauce.

We hope that you enjoy this kick off week of football. Our team is the Atlanta Falcons and they were just predicted to go to the next super bowl! Woohoo! This will be a fun year for us to watch and we hope those Falcons can live up to it!
