  1. It looks like it took hours to prepare! I have to try your blender sauce next time when I make pasta for my husband.

  2. A scrumptious and comforting dish! I love meatballs, tomato sauce and spaghetti.



  3. Yummy! Love spaghetti and meatballs and I like that you balanced it out with sugar. Tomato based sauces can often be so tart! I usually add some chili flakes in my sauce too for some extra kick!

      Thanks Farah, I learned this from a chef, he said that adding a pinch of sugar get rid of the tart taste coming from tomatoes also getting rid of the seeds helps 🙂
