monday meatballs

In the January 2016 issue of Bon Appetit Magazine, the RSVP section had 2 recipes that caught my eye.  The first was for the “stellar quinoa burgers” from Cafe Pasqual’s in Santa Fe, New Mexico:

To keep things healthy and low carb, I opted to skip the pasta eat both types of meatballs with some boiled kale and tomato sauce.


The quinoa ones were just not good, even when they were covered in tomato sauce.  😛
