Spaghetti & Meatballs

Spaghetti & Meatballs

Recipe Details:

Normally when I make pasta, I simply add a sauce and perhaps a kielbasa sausage. They are quick and I can heat them in the microwave. But this time I wanted something classic, spaghetti and meatballs. Gluten-free pasta of course, and plenty of substitutions in the meat balls. The dish turned out so well my husband said it reminded him of spaghetti when he was a child.
