Chef Jasper’s Fettuccine & Meatballs

Ready in 20 Minutes


IN YOUR BOX

fettuccine noodles
organic extra virgin olive oil packets
mirepoix (carrot, celery, onion)
roasted minced garlic
local marinara (Chef Jasper’s)
local meatballs (Circle B Ranch)
grated parmesan cheese
chopped parsley


FROM YOUR KITCHEN

large stockpot with lid
large, deep skillet
colander


1. BOIL THE FETTUCCINE

BOIL water in large stockpot and 1 teaspoon salt.

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


2. 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. 


3. 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!

★TIP: Please recycle your dinner kit packaging. Our containers are made of plant-based materials and can be composted.


DRINK PAIRINGS

Wine: Orin Swift Locations "I" Red Blend (Italy)
Features intense aromas of dark fruits, spices and wildflowers for the nose and rich flavors of plums, black cherries and mineral components for the palate.

Beer:  Boulevard Tank 7
A variation on a traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, this beer begins with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, then tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.
