Chicken, Mint & Sriracha Meatballs w. Delicious Pasta- Kyckling, Mynta & Sriracha Köttbullar med Underbar Pasta

IMG_3249

Traditional Swedish Meatballs are hard to beat, although, meatballs can be (IS for sure) so much more than what you normally buy at IKEA. It’s an easy dish to elaborate with, and the combinations are endless. The other week I felt an urge for some mint (I mean I do almost everyday, but still). I decided to experiment a little with ground chicken, and I must say that the result was amazingly delicious. A must try! To go with it I made a pasta with vegetables and spinach. All for a perfect hearty yet interesting weekday meal.
