A garlic lovers dream! I cut the sauce and spaghetti to 4 servings but kept the meatball recipe the same so I could freeze them for future use. of course I taste tested a few for lunch and yummy! I made the meatballs about 3/4 in diameter and some 1 in diameter for meatball subs.
For the sauce I followed direction but added in additional herbs (an ice cube of basil pesto.)
Very good recipe and one I will use again when my sauce is depleted in the freezer. I keep frozen tomatoes in my freezer for recipes as well as canned tomatoes when those are out.
Thank you. Made in Honour of Ed 2010.

Loved it.. This one could be scary if you are not a garlic lover, by my calculation DH and I are safe from vampires for the next year LOL ! I cut the recipe down to 4 servings but still kept 3 large cloves of garlic in the meatballs, and 4 in the sauce. The smell of it cooking is great! I did have a little problem because the recipe says "0 tomato" in the sauce, so I guessed and added about 250 g of tinned tomatoes and another 200g tetra pack of minced tomatoes. First it seemed I had too much sauce so I didn't add all of it to the oven dish, but later after cooking it had thickened up a lot so luckily I have the reserved sauce in the fridge and can add that when DH finishes this for lunches in the next days. I liked the texture of the meatballs and they held together well and apart from my tomato guess, the only change I made was to increase the herbs becuase we enjoy strong flavours. Please see my rating system: 4 stars from the DH Pasta Fanatic and that's very good going! he didn't rave but there were also no negative comments. This recipe passed muster and I will be making it again. Thanks!
