A delicious big bowl of pasta is exactly what the doctor ordered as we make it through that last little bit of cold nights.

 

And who doesn’t love whipping up a traditional spaghetti and meatballs to enjoy with the family, friend or just for yourself.

 

The great thing about cooking up a big batch of pasta sauce is having leftovers for lunches, dinner and something to enjoy for future meals.
