Homemade Tomato Cream Sauce and Meatballs

This recipe was a relative quick one to make. As long as you have the beef already thawed out beforehand this one doesn’t take super long. I think spaghetti sauce is sooo much better homemade. Don’t get me wrong, if I’m feeling lazy I grab a jar from the pasta aisle. But if you want something you super delicious take the extra time to make this! I promise you it’ll be good. Like i’ve said before I try to stay away from pasta and bread so for this recipe I made zucchini noodles. I’ve posted before about how to make those… or if you’re too lazy to look then there’s this magical tool called Google.
