Wow, this dish sounds delicious! Glad to see organic ingredients, as we are 99.99% chemical free and eat organic. I pinned this to put on next week’s menu plan.

If your Chicken Meatballs taste as good as you, I mean they, look…wow! I was wondering in your recipe, is “cooking pan” a skillet? Thanks ERIC! Shanna is a lucky and beautiful girl!

Thanks a lot Melinda! That recipe is definitely a go to for me

I made this recipe for dinner tonight. It comes out tasty! There are a few adjustments to be made, however.
1. I made meatballs with a 1 Tbsp. measuring spoon. After browning, they were not cooked through. So, they went into a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes to cook.
2. 16oz (1 lb) of pasta is far too much for the amount of sauce. We used about a third of the cooked pasta. Would use perhaps 4-6 oz of pasta next time.

Heather thank you for coming to the site and giving this recipe a try I really appreciate it. I apologize for not being more detailed in the instructions. The type of pasta I used for this recipe worked out as for as the amount so it may depend on the type used or maybe preference as well. The cooking time for the meatballs depends on the type of pan and temperature used but I hope the way you cooked them came out great. Again thank you for your input.
