Chicken Meatballs:
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 green onion thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Method

Chicken Meatballs: In large bowl, beat egg yolk; stir in bread crumbs, mustard, green onion, garlic, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Mix in chicken. Roll by 1 tbsp (15 mL) into balls. Bake on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet in 375°F (190°C) oven until no longer pink inside, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, stock, 1 cup (250 mL) water and tomato paste; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add chicken balls and pasta; cover and simmer until pasta is tender but firm, about 10 minutes. Add peas; heat through. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate, uncovered, until cold. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.) Sprinkle with Parmesan.
