Sunday Supper Suggestion, Savory Meatballs in Paprika Pear Sauce.

Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper. Sunday Supper is one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestion, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

We had a lovely dinner tonight, Savory Meatballs Glazed in Paprika Pear Sauce. It might seem like an odd combination, but it is quite delicious. The meatballs contain a tasty mix of minced parsley, raisins, and Parmesan. But when this dish comes together on your plate and you enjoy the all the flavors presented, no one stands out. 

We served the meatballs over brown rice and enjoyed a salad on the side. A perfect dinner, well balanced in flavor and easy on the cook, definitely could be a weeknight dinner. I used a Bosc pear, but next time it will be a Bartlett. For me it is hard to beat a Bartlett pear, they are always juicy and delicious. 

Savory Meatballs Glazed in Paprika Pear Sauce, delicious and easy enough for weeknights!
