Meatballs And Marinara On The Cheap

Meatballs and Marinara On A Budget
Meatballs and Marinara On A Budget

One of my favorite dishes is meatballs and spaghetti with marinara sauce. You can go to several high-end Italian restaurants in New York, where I live, and pay a small fortune for it – but I’m on a budget kick these days.

Funny enough, I don’t have to be at this point in my life. The money is coming in steadily for the first time in my life, and all of a sudden I’m thinking of ways to save as much of it as possible. What the heck? Maybe I’ve matured financially? Maybe I just got tired of seeing an empty fridge when the money did run out – I think that’s more of what it’s about than anything else.

With that being said, I came across a recipe on one of my favorite blogs,, where my homegirl Beth, put together this dish that kicks major ass. She calls it “skillet meatballs and marinara.” Hey, I don’t care what she calls, the fact is she cooked up another winner, that’s for sure.

I put this dish together with Turkey sausage instead of pork sausage, and it tasted absolutely ri-donk-ulous! That’s a technical term by the way. What’s even more amazing is that you can hammer out six servings from her recipe, and it only costs you $10. Yes, you read that right the first time.

In actuality, it will cost you less than ten bucks, but I’m sure, like myself, you will find a way to spend the change on something at the register (I bought two bags of plaintain chips – whoo hoo!!) So check out the recipe, and let me know what you think.

On a whole other note, let me squeeze in an opportunity to talk about my favorite, and so far, only, sponsor, the Tooth Implant Pros. These dudes are blowing up! In my last post I wrote that they had offices in New York City, Pittsburgh, and Washington DC. I now learned that they are in the process of opening up an office in Colorado Springs as well.

Colorado is where I’m taking my next vacation. It’s where I’m going to partake in some of the recreational activities they have going on over there, if you get my drift. Well, these guys are already making it happen over with a new dental implants partner.

So if you are in the market for implants, and you live next to, or even in, Colorado Springs, then you have a few choices. You can search them out first using the phrase, “Most Affordable Dental Implants In Colorado Springs CO.” You can call them at 719-299-3564; or you can click the link above, and do both at the same time – thew choice is all yours!
