MEATBALLS IN HERBED TOMATO SAUCE
COOKBOOK: Women’s Weekly - Pasta Cookbook
The recipe didn’t indicate that this was a pasta dish even though it was from a pasta cookbook! Out came the pasta to mix with the meatballs and it was absolutely delicious if I must say myself!
Meatballs are time consuming to make so when you do make them always double the recipe so you have some for the day after. I have friends who prefer to make it as a spaghetti bolognese as it is less time consuming.
I personally would have just had the meatballs on their own!
I could have imagined making meatballs toasties with these! Pasta was great but meatballs on their own would have been just as good.
