Russian Porcupine Meatballs

This is one of my favorite comfort foods. The sauce that goes with this is to die for. They’re called porcupine meatballs (тетфтели ежики – tefteli ezhiki) because of the rice that is in them. They stick out like quills sometimes.

We tend to have the meatballs and the sauce over macaroni. My family soaks up the remaining sauce on the plate with a piece of bread because it is that scrumptious!

Enchilada Stuffed Pasta Shells

Italian Stuffed Shells

stuffedshellsstuffed-shells-pan 

The following recipe is enough to make and fill two of these 9×13 pans. I suppose you could bake one in your glass/pyrex baking pan.. and bake the other one in one of these foil type of pans so you can freeze it up for a later use.  Ryan loved these and gobbled them up like there was no tomorrow! I am sure you will like this as well!
