  1. Definitely a good cheap meal, I like to add a bit of balsamic vinegar to the sauce to give it a bit more tang :)

  2. I didn't know you could get ready made meatballs! They look like an interesting alternative to classic spag bol.

  3. We love meatballs, too - and I really like the simplicity of your recipe - will have to give it a go x
