Quick and Easy Farfalle with Swedish Meatballs


I was totally exhausted working three 12 hour night shifts after only a night off. The last 12 hour shift I worked, we were short staffed, I had the narcotic key, Heparin Drip and a total of 7 patients. I need a vacation! So I decided to check out my pantry and found these ingredients:



24 pieces of Swedish Chicken meatballs (KYCKLINGKOTTBULLAR)

1 lb. Barilla Farfalle

25 oz Tuscan Traditios Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce

grated Parmesan cheese


1. Cook pasta as per package direction. Mine is boiling water in a pot and adding the farfalle and simmering for 11 minutes and draining in a colander and set aside.

2. Pour the pasta sauce in a Caphalon pan and add the meatballs and simmer for 11 minutes until the meatballs are cook through.

3. Add the pasta and mix until well combined. Turn off the stove. Sprinkle parsley or scallions on top. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese.

Here it is, a super speedy pasta dish. As always, it’s Peaches here trying to make mine and  your already stressed life a little easier worth some simplified cooking!
