Homemade Spaghetti & MeatballsSpaghetti and Meatballs is a quintessential comfort food, and a favorite at our house.  I found this recipe years and years ago and have tinkered with it over the years until I deemed it perfectly delicious.   This recipe is written for making mass amounts of sauce and meatballs…because I love cooking in bulk and utilizing the deep freeze! These recipes make more meatballs than you need for the sauce, so eyeball it…put as many meatballs as you want in your sauce, but the rest will freeze well on their own without the sauce.  Spaghetti & Meatballs is a super easy dinner, and it’s one of our favorites.  To top it off, add homemade Garlic Bread and you have a meal that will wow.
