Sketti and Meatballs will forever be my favorite meal. When I found out I couldn’t have real pasta ever again, I was like….WHAT. Excuse me? Is this a bad dream? Eventually I got over it. But it took me almost an entire year to find a brand of gluten free pasta that actually looked and tasted like real pasta (Jovial Foods, you’re awesome). I’ve also grown to love spaghetti squash. It’s a great alternative to pasta, has a nice crunch, and tastes great…and it’s good for you!

I’ve been making a version of these meatballs for a while now – they are really simple to make, gluten free, paleo, and Whole30 compliant. I had some extra prosciutto lying around in the fridge, so I decided to throw it into the mix and they turned out SO GOOD. The prosciutto gives the meatballs a nice salty, savory kick. I find compliant prosciutto at Costco. Just look for a brand where the ingredients are simply pork and salt.

To save time, I prefer to throw these into a pot with some Rao’s Marinara once they’re done baking. I let them simmer for 30ish minutes so the flavors of the meatballs really seep into the sauce. And if you want to make your own homemade sauce, more power to you!

I also love doubling this recipe – eat half for dinner and save the rest for meals throughout the week. I’m all about saving time and working smarter not harder 🙂
