This one might seem a little on the nose, but Lady and the Tramp movie night calls for spaghetti and meatballs. I like to get the crunchy breadsticks to go along with the meal (no carb left behind!).
For this evening we like to include our pups in the fun as well. They don’t usually get people food, but I make a few pup friendly meatballs for them, too.
We also like to get a red checked tablecloth to add to the fun. For an adult dessert it’s tiramisu all the way! The kiddos get a super special spaghetti sundae (Don’t knock it till you try it!)
- 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
- ¼ cup grated Romano cheese
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
- Black pepper
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ cup water
- 2 eggs
- 1 ½ pounds ground beef
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Whisk eggs and water in a separate bowl. Combine breadcrumbs, cheese, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and beef. Once combined, add egg and water mixture. Roll into one-inch meatballs and place on a foil lined and cooking sprayed baking sheet. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until browned.
For the Pup Meatballs
Use the same process as above, just leave out the garlic powder and onion powder. Also, use regular breadcrumbs instead of Italian, in case there is garlic powder in the Italian bread crumbs.
Spaghetti & Meatball Sundae
Let vanilla ice cream thaw on the counter until it’s soft. On a foil lined baking sheet, run the ice cream through a potato ricer. Stick the ice cream sheet back into the freezer for about 45 minutes (this can be while you are making and eating dinner). Pull the ice cream out and carefully place it on a plate. Use strawberry sundae sauce for the marinara sauce and brownie bites for the meatballs. Once all these are on the plate then grate some white chocolate over the top for parmesan cheese.
My name is Sarah Niswender and I have WDW in my veins, going to the parks several times per year as early as age 2. Growing up in SoFla I was fortunate enough to have a lifelong Disney education, thanks to my mother (and hardworking father)! I am now passing the love for everything Disney along to my daughter and somewhat reluctant husband. I have participated in several runDisney events and am looking forward to participating as a part of the WDWRadio running team. See you on Main Street USA!
