Spaghetti and Meatballs

Here’s a classic — Spaghetti and Meatballs.  You can make the sauce and meatballs in advance, storing the meatballs in the tomato sauce.  Just reheat the meatballs and sauce on the stove while you cook the spaghetti.  While the dish looks complicated, it’s really not.  Enlist a helper and you’ll be done in no time.
