I pull out all of my fun toys for this amazing meal 🙂

It sounds intimidating but it really is quite easy and can be made in under 30 minutes and you can pre-make parts and make lots for freezing and to use in other meals. If you plan your meals properly you can get multiple meals out of this!

There are three basic parts…

Meatballs made in a Vortex Air Fryer (or use Turkey Meatballs!)
The sauce – made in an instant pot
The noodles – made in the pasta machine

How good do they look? Trust me when I say they taste better than they look!

Now for the reality – you just read that and went…WTH that is dirtying three machines?

Yes, and No. This is why I am constantly cooking for future meals. Cook double batches and only clean once and get awesome food for a week!

The Vortex Air Fryer meatballs – simple rinse of the pan and it’s clean (didn’t heat the house using the oven). I usually cook something else with them like burgers or make a double batch for meatball subs!

The sauce – it all cooks in here – either store in the pan with THIS LID or toss in dishwasher. Make extra for another meal.

The noodles – I make two to three batches at once for future recipes. It can be thrown in the dishwasher too!


I will say the pasta machine is the most cumbersome to clean but there is something seriously awesome about homemade pasta. Seriously you won’t go back after you try homemade pasta. This is why I try to make a few batches and either freeze or refrigerate them to use in a day or so. OR I make a bunch of stuff in one day and don’t cook for a few days.

I am a fan of this spaghetti sauce. Super great right out of the can. I add a little sugar and seasoning and that is it! I save extra sauce for meatball subs!
