Look what can come from cleaning out my freezer?! I always forget what’s even in there, but it’s making me get creative in the kitchen. Meatballs, check. Rice, check. Leftover pizza sauce, check! And I LOVE when I can randomly throw a meal together out of thin air and it tastes good! And I LOVE a one pot meal.

I’m a huge fan of one pot meals. They are so easy for me to cook and super simple for feeding my family. And I especially love cooking meals in a skillet – One Pot Italian Pizza Meatball Skillet.

What ingredients I used:

  • Costco Italian meatballs
  • Trader Joe’s frozen jasmine rice
  • leftover pizza sauce from last week’s pizza delivery (I always ask for extra!!)
  • and some mozzarella to top!

Really, really simple recipe. It’s one of those semi-homemade recipes that give you just enough to work with and make your own!
