Broken Spaghetti Meatballs

Meatballs are one of our favorites in my house so it wasn’t a surprise immediately I saw this broken spaghetti meatballs in a cookbook (put my own spin) a friend gave me, I said to myself that we will be making this over and over again, and guess what I was right.

I had made this broken spaghetti meatball several times. It was made with meatballs but spaghetti was added to it. I have meatball recipes on the blog you might want to check. You can use ground turkey, chicken, pork, veal or a mixture of them. Broken spaghetti meatballs are so delicious and this is one way to use your leftover spaghetti or just make it with freshly cooked pasta.
