Cheesy Spaghetti And Meatballs

By: John Goins from
Cheesy Spaghetti And Meatballs
Cheesy Spaghetti And Meatballs

"Spaghetti and meatballs is better when made homemade. It’s much tastier than purchasing ready to cook spaghetti and meatballs and tomato sauce. Served with a piece of delicious French bread and a bottle of wine. Or, serve this up to your friends together with a slice of garlic bread and fresh okra salad for a perfect meal idea! This pasta favorite is guaranteed to please the entire crowd. The mixture of beef, chorizo, and oregano makes the meatballs flavorful. You can use ground chicken or a combination of ground beef and pork to create a wonderful, umami-bomb meatball as well."
