Spaghetti with Meatballs


         This is my second recipe for Blogging Marathon under " Bookmarked recipes " and  bookmarked from Giada De laurentis - Food network Channel.  This is a classy recipe made with mutton meatballs / kola urundai to international standard. I have made slight changes in tomato sauce recipe to suit my family taste and prepared traditional kola urundai recipe for meat balls.  You can use store bought  tomato pasta sauce and adjust spice level according to your taste.   Do Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 29.
