    Delicious. Had a nice crispy exterior - don’t know if that was supposed to happen but it was a happy accident regardless. Keeping this one in my pocket (the recipe, that is.........).

    I’ve made these twice now. They are super easy to make and are really delicious. In order to make it healthier, I used extra lean ground beef and whole grain spaghetti. Also, I added extra garlic and added in some Italian seasoning to kick it up a notch. Great recipe!

    They came out good and i added butter Instead of foil to the cooking pan because the meatballs stuck to the foil.

    The recipe was very easy but turned out a little bland. Will be adding more seasoning next time.
