Real Meatballs compared to Fake...

This week for Barefoot Bloggers Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake selected this dinner recipe, Ina's Real Meatballs and Spaghetti. These were so filling and hearty! I had a special Valentines dinner made by my husband and daughter. It was so sweet of them to cook for us since it has never happened before! They substituted whole grain penne with flax seed pasta, whole grain bread crumbs and used a lower fat hamburger. He has never made pasta sauce but it still had a good flavour. The meatballs were my favorite part of the dinner. I loved them as a kid and have made lots of varites over the years. These reminded me of my mothers type of meatballs. The kids and I all enjoyed this dinner! The meatballs were a little crunchy due to overcooking but it was the thought that counts and the recipe is definitely a good one that we will be making again.
