A super easy dinner, perfect for the busy season. These Italian Meatball Kabobs are a firm family favorite!
You guys, you are about to be SUPER popular with your family with this recipe for Italian Meatball Kabobs. We are in FULL swing of school/homework/activities/chores and errands – and honestly, by the time I’m done with the school run and the homework battle, I’m ready to tap-out and take-out.
IF, however, I stock my fridge with easy dinner options, I can avoid the drive-through, and serve up a delicious meal that my whole family will devour.
Want to know a SURE-fire way to get your kids to eat dinner? Make them HELP! Haha. Or should that be “help”… aka, make you crazy and test your control freak restraint…
I mean… the evidence speaks for itself, doesn’t it?
H is a BIG fan and didn’t even mind the addition of “green stuff” (aka pesto) to the meatballs. My kids LOVE “meat on sticks” (corn dogs, chicken satay, etc.) and these kabobs are no exception.
Both my kids and husband want to know when I’m making these again (the answer is tomorrow) because they really are THAT easy. I can throw these in the oven while I prep a side and get dinner on the table super-fast.
