Step 1: Prepare the Crumble Mix

PREHEAT the oven to 375 degrees.

COAT the bottom of the baking dish with 1 butter ball.

COMBINE the crumble mix, chopped pecans and remaining butter balls in a food processor and blend until the crumble resembles coarse sand. If you don’t have a food processor, use a hand masher. Be careful not to over-mix.

REFRIGERATE the crumble mix.

Step 2: Prepare and Bake the Apple Crumble

PEEL and CORE the apples and cut into 2-inch cubes.

MIX the apples with the sugar and lemon juice.

PLACE the apple mixture in the buttered baking dish.

DISTRIBUTE the chilled crumble mix evenly over the top.

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

Step 3: Boil the Pasta

While the apple crumble bakes...

BOIL 6 cups water and 1 teaspoon salt in a large pot.

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

Step 4: Prepare the Sauce

While the pasta boils...

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

STIR in the carrots, celery and onion and sauté for 5 minutes.

ADD the minced garlic and sauté for 1 minute more.

STIR in the marinara and meatballs. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

Step 5: Serve It Up

DRAIN the fettuccine and combine with the meatball sauce.

SERVE the pasta topped with grated parmesan and chopped parsley.

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