Meatball Linguini

Hey Friends,

I can’t get enough of this! A classic meatball spaghetti. Ok that’s a lie, it is more of a meatball linguine with some healthy peas. Super delicious and healthy! great for the whole family.

I like to make more meatballs to chill as a snack for when I’m in uni. Or for a meal of meatball sub. Ok I have got to stop describing food, or my laptop keyboard will be drown in saliva. (Ok, that is gross, I’m sorry.)

What I haven’t tried but is probably really delicious is putting a cube of cheese in the middle of the meatballs. Imagine the runny cheese dripping out! I have got to try that the next time I make some!
