Linguine With Marinara Sauce and Meatballs

"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."

    We loved this quick, easy and flavorful dish. The sauce and meatballs were very yummy. I added a few sprinkles of sugar to reduce the tartness of the tomato, and I mixed the sauce into the pasta instead of spooning it on top. Served topped with Parmesan cheese and fresh basil, this was a dinner favorite. It was even better the next day. **Made for Susie's World Tour 2018 - Malta**
