Spaghetti and Meatballs

When a recipe is on the cover of Bon Apetit magazine, I expect it to be good...no...I expect it to be GREAT! We've made several of the cover recipes over the years and most have been outstanding. When I got the latest issue, I knew immediately that I was going to have to make the cover recipe...Spaghetti and Meatballs All'amatriciana. It looked fantastic! The hubs doesn't normally like many pasta or Italian dishes (crazy, I know) but I knew that he would be willing to give it a go if it was the COVER recipe.

Finally we had a day, a few weeks ago, where I had a chance to make it. I have to say that I was a little disappointed with the recipe overall, but the chics devoured it. The recipe made a ton so I froze the leftovers with my lovely Foodsaver. I'm so glad I did cause the big chic asked me to make it for her lunch for tomorrow!

Please tell me more about that cute little lunchbox! Sometimes we only need a small box, like when I send along something in a thermos.

Yum! Good idea to put the spaghetti and meatballs in the thermos!

RLR - I got the small bento at the Sanrio (Hello Kitty) store at the mall. It's perfect to go along with the thermos or when we just need a snack bento!

Thanks! We don't have one of those stores here - my kids may end up with a small lock-n-lock instead. Much less 'fun' - but still does the trick!
