Am I the only one who used to think that a spaghetti dish without meatballs was outrageously incomplete?

I learnt the hard way to cope without them as the economy grew tighter. We just have to admit though, that adding meatballs to a delicious spaghetti dish gives it a whole new vibe .

So when you ask me, “would you like some meatballs to go with your spaghetti………..illd most definitely scream yes please!!”

If you are cluless about making meatballs, don’t worry I gat you!

You would be a pro in no time, trust me. Illd also throw in an extra sauce recipe for the meat balls.
