Meatball Pasta

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sandaidh

I found this in a little paperback cookbook from long ago days, called 365 Ways to Cook Hamburger. I like it because it's a quick and easy way to make spaghetti and meatballs in one pot. I tend to use more spaghetti than called for, and I use California Bay leaves rather than the bottled ones you get at the store. I've also substituted dehydrated onion flakes in place of fresh chopped onions.

Yummy! Changed it just a bit... used some homemade salsa that was on hand in place of the tomato sauce. This recipe is quick easy and very tasty!! Thanks for posting!
