We just got back from our trip out west to Yellowstone and Glacier National Park. Wow was it amazing and I will be posting pictures from our trip soon.
But for now, let's talk a little about food, this is a food blog and all. When you go on vacation for a week or so, do you get stick of going out to eat? This trip I tried my best to go out of the norm an not order a burger every time we went out to eat. That being said, I always get to a point where I just want to make my own meals.
Since the weather has been so nice out, I wanted to grill and didn't want the typical burger. I had been craving Italian food but with it being 80 degrees out, I didn't want something heavy like pasta. Then the idea struck me, Italian Kebabs. These were SUPER easy and quick, perfect for a week night dinner.
Italian Meatball Kebabs
1 red pepper, cut into bite sized pieces
1 green pepper, cut into bite sized pieces
3 tablespoons Italian dressing
40 precooked Italian seasoned meatballs
1 1/2 cups marinara/spaghetti sauce
Preheat the grill to 300 degrees.
Soaking the skewers in water.
Add the peppers to a small bowl. Drizzle with the Italian dressing and toss to coat.
Start to assemble your kebabs by alternating peppers and meatballs. Drizzle the kebabs with additional Italian dressing, not to drench them, just a little drizzle.
Place the kebabs on the grill and grill for about 7-9 minutes or until fully cooked.
While the kebabs are grilling, place the marinara sauce in a sauce pan on medium high heat, just to heat through.
Once the kebabs are cooked, remove from the grill and serve with a side of the warm marinara sauce.
