Kim's Story

Well, I invested in the Ninja Cooking System and much to my surprise it has been amazing so far. I was somewhat of a skeptic...but wanting to believe. It does what is says it will do and then some. I am still in shock that I threw in dry pasta, water, spaghetti sauce and my own homemade uncooked frozen meatballs all in one pot and 30 minutes later; perfection! The pasta was al dente & the meatballs the moistest & tender I have ever had.

Talk about convenience and ease, this product is it!

Recipe from Ninja Cooking System Cookbook.


ninja cooking system
4 c
1 lb
spaghetti, dry
1 jar(s)
24 ounces of your favorite pasta sauce or your own homemade sauce
1 pkg
24 ounces frozen meatballs, or your own homemade and frozen

Directions Step-By-Step

Ninja Cooking System --
Pour 4 cups of water into pot. Place your dry pasta down into the water. No need to break in half unless you want to. Add your sauce and the frozen meatballs.
Set the oven to 300 F for 25 minutes. Cover and cook until pasta is tender and meatballs done. Stir occasionally while cooking. (I used my own homemade uncooked meatballs and they turned out delicious. I did cook for 7 addtl minutes.

If you use a thinner sauce use 1/2 cup less water.
Serve immediately right from the pot. You can lift out and take it to the table with lid on. Serve this with some Italian bread and a nice salad. A perfect meal. I am still amazed how the pasta came out al dente and the meatballs were the moistest I have ever had!!

I have been experimenting with my new ninja. I found that if you reduce the water to 3 cups of water and add 1 small can of tomato paste its less watery and thicker...

I know you really can't double this recipe...I think I tried that once and added more noodles and sauce and got clumpy noodles at the end. Hope this helps a little for ya Deb. Let me know if you try anything different.

I just made Swedish Meatballs with dry noodles in the Ninja last night and it turned out well. I put the 4 cups of water in, then dry noodles (I used egg noodles) then my frozen meatballs. I set it for the 25 minutes and at 15 minutes gave it a stir. Then from there I believe I stirred 3 more times. I made my sauce on the stove and added it in after the 25 minutes and set to buffet setting temp. ---I had that happen only once not sure what I did wrong either.
