Dinner Pasta Recipe Side Dishes

This recipe is probably one of my favorites, after trying this please let me know what you think. Usually when making pasta sauce I use very basic ingredients I don’t really add meat or much spices, I like to keep it light and simple. You can find my homemade sauce recipe here. But I also love this recipe below. The meatballs come out so tender and moist they melt when eating them. You can add pasta and make pasta and meatballs with this recipe or you can use this recipe as a side dish with something else and if not, you can also just serve with fresh bread.

Meatballs cooked in sauce they not only taste amazing they come out super tender and moist.
