Easy Spaghetti and Meatballs Recipe

Easy Spaghetti and Meatballs Recipe

WHEN I was a teenager, I cooked dinner every night for our family of four...Mom, Dad, Grandmother, who lived next door, and myself. Through the years, I have modified and changed this recipe for two people to better fit our tastes. That's one of the great things about this dish. It's easy to do just that! -David Stierheim, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
