Spaghetti & Meatballs Recipe

Quite popular and well known Italian dish: spaghetti & meatballs. I’m sure every mom has her own version of spaghetti & meatballs recipe. It’s such a good combination of flavors and taste, that one can hardly fail this dish. The ingredients are pretty basic and the process is quite simple, and what’s best than a good bowl of homemade spaghetti & meatballs. I found that ground turkey works the best for these meatballs. They turn out very soft and juicy. However if you prefer ground beef or chicken, I’m sure it will taste very good too, so it’s up to your preference.
