     One Dish Dinner- Pasta with Mini Chicken Meatballs

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None
Servings   4
Preptime   30-60 mins

1/2 lb orecchiette or other small pasta
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
2 eggs
1 tablespoon whole milk
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 1/2 cups parmesan cheese, divided
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1 lb ground chicken
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup chicken broth
4 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
8 oz bocconcini (small mozzarella balls), halved
1/2 cup packed chopped fresh basil

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until tender.
In a medium bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, parsley, oregano, eggs, milk, ketchup, 3/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken and combine well. Using a melon baller or teaspoon, scoop up the mixture and roll into 1 inch mini meatballs. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium- high heat. Working in batches, add the meatballs and cook without moving until brown on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Turn the meatballs and brown the tops. (It took me three batches to get all the meatballs browned.)
Return all meatballs to pan and add chicken broth and tomatoes and bring to a boil, using a wooden spoon to scrape up the brown bits on bottom of skillet. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the tomatoes are soft and meatballs are cooked through, about 5 minutes.
Drain the pasta and add to the meatballs. Add the remaining 3/4 cup Parmesan, bocconcini, and basil. Give it a good stir and serve with additional Parmesan if desired.
