Brooke Churches Up An Old Favorite: Chili Mac

  • 2 min read


Cavatappi is corkscrew shaped pasta. You can substitute for another type of pasta if you would like. Primavera is a pasta dish that combines vegetables with pasta.


Ingredient List:

  • Cavatappi Pasta (Uncooked) - 3.5 ounce, or about 1 cup dry pasta
  • Marinara Sauce - ⅓ cup
  • Ground Beef (Uncooked) - 5 ounces
  • Broccoli - 2 ounces, or about ¾ cup chopped
  • Red Onion - 1 ounce, or about ¼ cup sliced
  • Mushrooms - 1 ounce, or about ½ cup sliced
  • Basil (Fresh) - 2 tablespoons
  • Skim Milk - 3 teaspoons
  • Garlic - 2 cloves



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Boil water for pasta, and cook per directions on the package.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mix the ground beef, chopped basil, minced garlic and skim milk together with your hands. Form small 1 inch balls and place them in a skillet greased with cooking spray over medium heat.
  4. Brown the meatball on all sides. This should take about 5 minutes. Make sure to stir them gently occasionally to make sure you get all sides browned.
  5. While you are waiting on the meatballs to brown- wash, dry and cut your broccoli, red onion and mushrooms. Place just the broccoli on the baking sheet and drizzle olive oil on top. Season with a little salt and pepper.
  6. Roast the broccoli for 15-20 minutes, adding the mushrooms and red onion half way through. Make sure to toss it around in the olive oil and mix it together when you add them.
  7. Add the marinara sauce to the meatball when they are browned, reduce heat to low, cover with a lid and cook for 15 minutes. Stir them occasionally.
  8. Once everything is done, drain the pasta and mix it all together for a veggie packed pasta with your homemade meatballs.
