Best Homemade Pasta And Meatballs Recipe (I Have Ever Made)


Went to pick up groceries one day. Figured, we wanted to eat pasta after a long day. Pasta, especially spaghetti for Filipinos, is somewhat a treat. We eat it most occasionally at birthday celebrations. It was perfect since it was my aunt's birthday too.

Egan and I decided to make it a little more special this time though. We made meatballs and used penne instead of spaghetti. It turned out great and just full of love. Yup! You can taste the love in the food. Try this...
