How do you match side dishes?
Build a Menu: 5 Tips for Matching Side Dishes with Main Dishes

- Think similar.
- Think seasonal.
- Think complete meal.
- When in doubt, make a simple green salad.
What is the best pasta to serve with meatballs?

How many sides should you have for dinner?
For six diners, three sides is enough, so you will need to be judicious about which sides you pick. Aim for at least one starch, like a Neapolitan pasta with lentils; one vegetable dish; and a bright salad, like Michael Solomonov’s kale tabbouleh to break everything up.
Why should the side dish complement the main dish?
A good side/main dish pairing will do a few things for your meal: Round out the nutrition. Balance the flavors. Add and compliment the textures of the main dish.
Should you cover meatballs when cooking in sauce?
Add browned meatballs directly into sauce. They will continue to cook in the sauce. Cook sauce and meatballs uncovered at a very low simmer, stirring occasionally for at least 2 hours (can simmer for hours on the stove).
Can you cook meatballs in sauce without browning?
Can you cook meatballs in sauce without frying? Although the meatballs are not browned first, they still cook though in the sauce and it is safe to add them to the sauce raw, as long as the sauce is kept at a simmer until the meatballs are cooked through.
What is the best way to Brown meatballs?
Baking. Browning in the oven at high heat is neater than frying and, if you’re making meatballs in quantity, both faster and easier than skillet searing. Baking them on a rack set over a baking pan ensures even cooking, and using your oven’s convection setting (if you have one) yields nicely browned surfaces.
