Noodles and savory meatballs tossed in a full-flavored tomato based sauce dusted with grated parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.
When I was little I HATED spaghetti. With a passion. I would rather eat the noodles doused in butter and parmesan.
Now, it’s one of my all time favorite meals.
There’s nothing more comforting than sitting down with a warm plate full of glistening noodles covered in the slightly spicy, slightly garlicy, spaghetti sauce. The meatballs? They’re an added bonus! These meatballs are full of flavor and spices and they soak up the taste of the sauce to perfection. Top it all off with some fresh Parmesan cheese and I am a happy, happy girl.
If you’re looking for a gluten free version, I love the Barilla Gluten free spaghetti noodles. There’s no difference between the taste of those and the regular noodles.
You could go further to making this skinnier and use ground turkey for the meatballs instead of the ground beef. I used the beef because that’s what I had on hand.
This plate of spaghetti is bursting with color and flavors. I could eat this and only this for days on end. And I am! This recipe will make you a decent amount. Enough worthy of two boxes of noodles. Which I really don’t mind all the lovely cubes of tupperware in my fridge that are currently containing this tangy tomato pasta. I only wish my 7 year old was as excited about this as I am. She’s a butter and Parmesan noodle eater. Wonder where she got that from? Hmmm.
