Spaghetti & Meatballs

IMG20170227205500.jpgIMG20170227205413.jpg

This simple plate of spaghetti is truly the fruit of my labour. Everything from the pasta, to the sauce and meatballs are made from scratch. It was tiring but i am so so happy with the end product! And it is not so bad since i still have pasta and meatballs in the fridge that i can use to cook over the next couple of days. I have officially converted my meatball-hating husband, he absolutely loves these ones that i made! He says its the best ones he’s had! The meatballs were so juicy and yummy, and goes perfectly with the pasta and sauce.
