FROM YOUR KITCHEN

8X8 baking dish
stand mixer with paddle attachment or hand masher (or food processor)
stand mixer bowl or large bowl
Y peeler
cutting board and knife
large bowl
large stockpot with lid
large, deep skillet
colander


1. LET’S GET READY TO CRUMBLE…MIX!

PREHEAT the oven to 375 degrees.

COAT bottom and sides of square baking dish with 1 butter ball.

COMBINE the crumble mix, pecans and remaining butter balls in stand mixer bowl or large bowl.

BLEND crumble mixture in stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment until the crumble mix resembles coarse sand. If you don’t have a stand mixer, use a hand masher (or food processor) to blend ingredients. Refrigerate.


2. PREPARE & BAKE THE APPLE CRUMBLE

PEEL and core the apples and cut into 2-inch cubes on cutting board.

MIX the apples with the sugar and lemon juice in large bowl.

POUR the apple mixture in the buttered baking dish.

DISTRIBUTE the chilled crumble mix evenly on top.

BAKE on middle rack of oven for 40 minutes. Then turn the heat up to 400 degrees and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until golden and bubbly.


3. BOIL THE FETTUCCINE

While the apple crumble bakes...

BOIL water in large stockpot and 1 teaspoon salt.

ADD the fettuccine and boil for 15 minutes or until al dente.


4. PREPARE THE MEATBALL SAUCE

While the fettuccine boils...

WARM the olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat.

STIR in the mirepoix and sauté until caramelized, about 5 minutes.
(★ What’s mirepoix? See note below.)

ADD the garlic and sauté for 1 minute more, then season with salt and pepper.

STIR in the marinara and meatballs. Reduce heat to medium and cover with lid. Simmer for 10 minutes.

★ Mire-Whaaaaa?  That’s mirepoix, pronounced “meer-pwah.” This is a fancy French word for diced veggies (typically carrot, celery and onion) that add a base layer of flavor. Mirepoix is typically cooked over gentle heat to sweeten and soften the dish. 


5. PUT IT ALL TOGETHER, SERVE & ENJOY!

DRAIN the fettuccine in the colander and combine with the warm meatball sauce.

SERVE the fettuccine and meatball sauce topped with parmesan and parsley.

ENJOY the apple crumble for dessert. (We recommend a little vanilla ice cream on top!)
