This Swedish Meatballs-Inspired Pasta Skillet is the PERFECT pasta. Swedish-inspired vegan meatballs, browned in a skillet. Then, the creamy but light sauce soaks up all the flavour from the caramelized browned bits in the pan, adding so much flavour to the pasta. Every bite is perfectly balanced with perfectly spiced vegan meatballs, creamy, nutmeg-fragrant pasta and creamy sauce.
I was busy in the kitchen this week testing recipes and this one kind of just came together perfectly! I had a loose idea in mind of what I wanted to make, but it turned out even better than I had anticipated. It made enough to feed a whole family, more than Greg and I needed, so I ended up giving some to my sister who takes her lunch to work every day. She messaged me the next day around 1pm saying “this is so bomb. What kind of spices you got in here?!”
This pasta tastes different than a lot of my other recipes, but in the best way! I don’t often experiment with sweetness when it comes to pasta, unless its my Maple Curry Penne from my first cookbook! However, you really will be so pleasantly surprised at how all of the spices come together and make it taste so good. Greg even said it reminded him of a more gourmet Hamburger Helper. Which, in his mind, is the highest type of complement :).
It’s special enough for a dinner party or special occasion dinner, but easy enough to make on a busy weeknight. And best of all, it’s delicious!Print
