Ingredients:

Classico Vodka Sauce - 1 Jar / 2 1/2 cups
Shanghai Thin Noodles - 1 pack ( 20 Oz,uncooked)
Oil - 1/2 tsp
Low Sodium Turkey Bacon - 2
Onions finely chopped - 1 cups
Garlic cloves chopped - 3 no
Red Pepper Flakes - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as needed
Basil leaves or parsley leaves (optional) - for garnishing
Turkey MeatBalls - 16 pieces
Ghee - 1 tsp (for coating the noodles from sticking with each other after cooking,Trust me using ghee gives extra delicious flavour)

Method:

1.Bring a big pot of water to boiling by adding 2 tsp of salt.

2. Take a pan and add oil ,then add turkey bacon and saute it till its crispy,then add onions,garlic and saute them till onions are translucent and slightly brown.

3.Then add red pepper flakes and give it a stir and add meat balls and saute it for 2 min.


4.Then add the vodka sauce and cover and keep flame in medium low and let it boil,leave a slight gap for steam.This will splatter so be careful use an apron.


5.Then when the sauce is bubbling and when its quantity is reduced to almost half.

6.Add noodles to boiling water in other pot,Let it cook for 4 - 5 min or by package instruction.
REmove noodle and wash them thoroughly in cold water by rinsing 5 to 6 times to prevent them from sticking and removing starch.

7.Then add ghee to noodles to prevent it from sticking to each other .

8.Add this noodle to the thickened sauce if you are serving in a platter,but i like to serve it in portion so i just plate the noodles in a bowl and top it with needed sauce along with meat ball.


9.For garnishing you can add basil leaves or parsley for extra flavour,But i didn't have any.
