Weeknight Spaghetti and Meatballs

Weeknight Spaghetti and Meatballs

Whenever I make meatballs – the first night we always have meatball subs or ‘bombers’ as we like to call them.   Partly because it’s enough work to mix the meatballs and cook them and I often don’t want to also boil water and cook pasta.   And then we rarely have leftover meatballs to use with pasta since my husband will eat a meatball bomber everyday of the week until they are gone.

So that is why I liked the idea of this ‘weeknight’ spaghetti and meatballs – one dish and get both your pasta and your meatball!
