Spaghetti Meatballs – Everyone favorite

Published on July 27, 2012 | Beef, Veal and Lamb


Spaghetti meatballs.

I always enjoy having children over and asking them what they want to eat.  Tonight’s dinner was a special request from our little friend: Spaghetti with Meatballs.

The following recipe is my “go to” when in need recipe.  I kept it free of onion and different meats as I did not want my little guests not to enjoy it.  Most of all, I also made the meatballs small consequently they could eat as many as they wanted instead of having the same questions asked: “must I eat it all???”.  Plates clean, 4 little meatballs eaten by each child.

The children’s were so full that no desert tonight.
To all, have a great evening.
