Plant-Based Spaghetti & Meatballs

Gluten Free/Plant Based Spaghetti & Meatballs

Hey Everybody……. I’m Starting my “Tasty Tuesdays” content where I’ll be sharing some of my recipe creations or a twist on old favorites with a tasty easy recipes. 

There’s nothing like sitting down to a hearty and tasty meal with my family especially when I mix the recipe up a bit. With RJ’s allergies and being a picky eater I’m getting creative. Spaghetti and Meatballs is one of our favorites and It’s so easy to make and never disappoints.

Here’s what you’ll need for this recipe all in under 30 minutes. Try it and let me know what you think.
