I didn't have any ravioli or large shells to stuff, so I decided rigatoni would be good enough! My husband didn't care for the stuffed rigatoni, but my kids loved it, and they loved how they turned green!

How to Make Meatballs with Stuffed Rigatoni

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine hamburger and sausage, form into meatballs and cook. Cover and keep warm.
  2. While noodles cook, combine ricotta cheese, spinach and bread crumbs in a blender (small one if you have) chop until a thick green paste.
  3. Use a frosting tip in a bag (if you have one) otherwise just cut a tip in the corner of a baggie and "pipe" paste into the cooked noodle. Place the noodles on an oven safe baking sheet. Top with cheese.
  4. Saute mushrooms and 1/2 of your green onions in some butter. Heat up spaghetti sauce.
  5. Broil the noodles for about 3 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Noodles will turn green!
  6. Top your meatballs with some spaghetti sauce, sauted mushrooms, cheese and fresh green onions. Serve with stuffed rigatoni and enjoy!
