Spaghetti w/ Chicken Meatballs; garlic bread; salad

Spaghetti with Chicken Meatballs

1 lb. ground chicken
1/2 onion, finely chopped
2 hot peppers, finely chopped (or 1/2 green)
Handful of fresh basil, chopped
1 egg
about 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
salt and pepper
one jar prepared spaghetti sauce of your choice
1 lb. cooked pasta of your choice

Mix all ingredients. Shape into small balls, or use a small ice cream scoop to make balls, and drop into already-hot spaghetti sauce (I used Newman's Cabernet Marinara) and cook at least half an hour. Serve over cooked pasta.

Garlic Bread

one Breadsmith baguette
1/2 stick butter, softened
1/4 cup olive oil
3-6 cloves garlic, crushed
Few sprigs of fresh parsley, chopped
Garlic Salt

Cut baguette into 4 pieces, and then slice each open down the middle. Combine butter, olive oil, garlic and chopped parsley. Spread onto cut side of baguette, then sprinkle with a bit of garlic salt. Heat in an oven or broiler until warm and slightly brown on edges


Lettuce, garden tomato, seedless cucumber and one green onion, topped with balsamic vinagrette.
