Meatballs, peppers and spaetzle: an almost "light" proposal ...

A tasty dinner fished from the stocks of the fridge? No problem!

As I have already told other times, I prepare many dishes a bit 'abundant so you have a small emergency stock.
And it may happen that you spent all day around and be back with a little appetite ...
and just a few days ago it happened like this:
back home I checked what was ready and I found that in the fridge I still had some baked meatballs the day before and also the peppers light
ready for the freezer.

In practice I did this:




extra virgin olive oil



baked meatballs


5 or 6

peppers light

I spent all in a pan

and I put water for the pasta on the fire.

Mezz'etto dried spätzle is already enough to fill the pot (also go well good egg noodles) and a teaspoon of olive oil complete the whole.

The time that the pasta was ready and that, dinner was on the table.
