recipe for spaghetti and meatballs

Favorite Family Recipes: Spaghetti and Meatballs

There’s nothing more comforting then a big bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. Whether you’re a new mom stocking the freezer with reheat-able meals for post-baby or a dutiful neighbor bringing dinner to a friend, you can’t go wrong with a hearty classic.

Tanya Schroeder loves the combination of ground pork and ground beef that make her Spaghetti and Meatballs on Lemons for Lulu hearty and flavorful. Her entire family reached for seconds – even her son who typically avoids red sauce.

One of the best things about this recipe is that you can modify it if you’re cooking for a crowd — make a double batch so you can feed your family dinner (and leftovers!) and still have enough to bring to a friend.

Pair with a loaf of crusty Italian bread and a fresh green salad…and maybe even that glass of red wine you’ve been eyeing for nine months.
