    PanNan's Note:

    When we're in the mood for good home made spaghetti (we prefer linguine) and meatballs, I make a simple sauce and cook the meatballs in it for a long time. Just before serving we add fresh herbs and top it with Parmesan.

      Very nice, full of flavor. I put this in the crock pot and let it do its thing for a few hours. Thanks for sharing!

      My son is a spaghetti and meatball fanatic so I chose this recipe to make for the night of his kindergarten graduation. I loved the simplicity of the marinara and the inclusion of fresh herbs, the boys loved the meatballs! My meatballs stayed together while cooking. I ended up simmering the sauce and meatballs for a little over 2 hours. Thanks Pan Nan! Zaar World Tour 4 - Whine and Cheese!

      This was so good and very hearty and fresh tasting. Made with ground chicken breast and they held together very well. Great dish Nan! Thanks for sharing!
