Kim's notes for this recipe:
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!

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!!
