Kenmore Genius Tip

My biggest household challenge is getting dinner on the table now that I am working.  My longtime motto has been, “use what you have.” From redoing furniture to recycling items for craft projects I try to use what I have.  I realized I have something that can help me with my household challenge!

I have a  teenage son!

He agreed if he had a photo tutorial he would be able to help get dinner ready. We started with a simple skillet meal.

Skillet Spaghetti and Meatballs

In a very large skillet put in:

  • 1 – 28 oz diced  canned tomatoes
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 2 1/2 cups water

Next add

  • 3 garlic cloves (peeled and pressed through the garlic press)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Bring sauce to a boil then immediately reduce heat to medium. Add in 12 ounces dried spaghetti. (break spaghetti in half if it is longer than the skillet)

Add  pre-cooked frozen meatballs to the spaghetti and sauce.

Cover skillet and simmer 8-10 minutes stirring frequently to keep spaghetti from sticking to the bottom of the skillet. Remove lid and finish cooking until spaghetti is tender.

Tada! I got help getting dinner on the table and he is a bit more prepared to live on his own.
