I love this feature on #CookingPlanit! You are able to add any dietary restrictions your family and friends have when preparing a meal. It is saved in your personal Planit. A plus since my oldest son is allergic to soy.
I made a few adaptions on Grandma Rose's Spaghetti and Meatballs and Cheesy Garlic Bread to suit my family and what I had on hand. Making this meal should be a real test since there are so many different ingredients to prep and steps to take to make it complete.
A glimpse at the many ingredients of this meal.
Some of the prep and cooking steps.
You can read the steps before you begin the cooking process. I have to admit, I was very anxious to finish since I am used to doing things at my own pace. Timing steps of recipes is not something I normally do. Cooking Planit, did come in handy more than I thought when I was preoccupied with my boys and was reminded it was time to go on to another step of preparing my meal.
The changes I made to the recipes.
For the tomato sauce, I used 3 cans diced tomatoes, with juice..eliminating the water, in place of the two cans of strained tomatoes and tomato sauce. I also used the whole can of tomato paste. The sugar was increased to taste.
I decreased the amount of salt in the water for the pasta to 1 teaspoon.
The meatballs were changed by increasing garlic and cheese. Using one pound each of ground chuck and pork. Adding 1/3 teaspoon freshly ground pepper and 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt.
Awesome cooked meatballs are added to the great tomato sauce.
I used french bread...it's what I had on hand.
We love this Cheesy Garlic Bread!
