This is a new spin on a recipe from my childhood-- my dad would make spaghetti and meatballs for me and my sister when my mom was too busy to cook. It was his favorite dish to cook-- boil spaghetti, heat frozen meatballs and refrigerated store-bought sauce, mix and serve. Once I got the hang of how Dad made S&M, I took it a few steps further-- and the result was a huge hit with my family!
