I love meatballs in spaghetti but they don't get throughout the spaghetti enough for me. So now I have the wonderful meatball flavor without the hassle and time to make them! This can be a one pot meal if you remove the meat after cooking, add water and cook the spaghetti. Drain when done and put the meat and sauces in pan with the pasta and combine.Everyone loves this recipe!
