“My husband can't eat tomato-based sauces, so I was trying to come up with something for him to eat when we eat spaghetti. This was it -- the kids even liked it and hubby had to fight them for it! I didn't actually measure the amounts for the meatballs, except the chicken and egg, but I think these are pretty close. I prepared the meatballs earlier in the day, so this was easy to toss together at dinnertime.”
