Not Your Mama’s Meatballs And Spaghetti

Not Your Mama’s Meatballs And Spaghetti, Just Try It And See.

This recipe is definitely different to the usual meatballs and spaghetti. It has a rich flavor that is so satisfying.

It has been a favorite of the family for years. Also we have made it with and with out the meatballs and it is just delicious.

I like adding the meatballs to make sure the family gets enough protein. Making a big batch of meatballs and freezing them definitely cuts down on the time in the kitchen. By doing this, I have them available for so many recipes, like this one.
