meatballsMeatballs are such a great thing to make and can be served with a nice onion gravy and rice or with a tomato sauce over pasta like this spaghetti meatballs recipe or for a fantastic home made burger. Finding the right combination of flavors is what it’s all about, so of you like basil, add some. If you like hot and spicy, add a little chili and when you find the perfect combination for your taste, write it down. This is how I like meatballs for a quick dinner.(It make 4 large servings)
