Monday Meals

A weekly series of my favorite quick easy healthy dinners!

I hate washing pots and pans, so the more one pot meals I can make, the better for me!

I have this pot and pan set, and bought this larger pan to fit more food in the pan! I use it every single day, unless I’m making a normal (in other words, not a one pot) meals.

I figured I would start out with my most requested recipe, both in real life and instagram!

My version of Swedish Meatballs!

As you can see from the photo above, most of my ingredients come from Trader Joe’s, if fact ~90% of my groceries come from TJs (I have a whole story about my TJs faves saved to my highlights reel on Instagram). I like the fact that most of their foods are relatively healthy, and free from additives and junk. I can assure you, this is not a sponsored post, TJs has absolutely no clue who I am, but if you’re reading, HI TRADER JOES! I LOVE YOU!

Now on to the recipe!



                              – 1 whole bag TJ Turkey Meatballs*

                              – 1 whole package TJs Pappardelle Noodles (Walmart has a ton of options)

                              – 2 cups TJs Frozen String Beans (any frozen string bean will do) 

                              – 1 cup TJs shredded carrots (optional)

                              – 1.5 cups Low Sodium chicken broth

                              – 1.5 cups milk (I use 1% organic from Costco)

                              – 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (optional)


                             – In a large 5.5qt pan on medium heat, heat the meatballs for a few minutes 

                               (the ones I use come pre-cooked)

                            – add veggies and cook a few minutes more

                            – add milk and chicken broth and let come to a boil

                            – add pappardelle noodles and cook according to package instructions

                            – If desired add parmesan cheese and stir until blended. 

                            – ENJOY!

*I use the TJs Turkey meatballs, you can find them in the frozen food section. If you don’t live near a TJs you can also use al Fresco meatballs they’re also a “no fuss” option or you can just make your own!
