Spicy Parmesan Meatballs with Angel Hair

It's been a busy weekend here and I am too tired to blog about my dinner but I will say it was fantastic! If you like meatballs be sure to try this one out!

Spicy Parmesan Meatballs with Angel Hair
Adapted from Betty Crocker

1 cup breadcrumbs ( I like panko)
1 lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef ( I used ground turkey)
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce (I used Barilla Vodka Sauce)
6 oz uncooked angel hair pasta
Additional shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired
1 to 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, if desired

In large bowl mix bread crumbs, ground beef, 1/4 cup cheese, the Italian seasoning, garlic powder and 1/4 cup of the pasta sauce until well blended. Shape into 16 (1 1/2-inch) meatballs.

Spray 12-inch skillet with cooking spray. Cook meatballs in skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until browned.

Add pasta sauce, and red pepper to meatballs; turn meatballs to coat. Cover; cook over medium-low heat 15 to 20 minutes, stirring sauce and turning meatballs occasionally, until meatballs are thoroughly cooked and no longer pink.

Meanwhile, cook and drain pasta as directed on package. Serve meatballs over pasta. Top each serving with additional Parmesan cheese and parsley. Enjoy!
