This Christmas, my family is hosting a dinner for everyone, and it seems this recipe will come in handy. All the kids love spaghetti and meatballs, and since this will serve almost sixty people and is faster than cooking a whole turkey, it will serve as the main dish while we wait for the turkey of course.
