Spaghetti and meatball recipe too good not to share

*I have lost my USB connector for my camera, so I am unable to upload any pictures from my camera to the computer. As soon as we buy a new one (because I've given up searching), I'll have some more posts.*

So, Chris made some really great spaghetti the other day. It was so good that I wanted to share the recipe with you! (He usually just makes things up as he goes along, so I can't ever share the recipe since I don't know what and how much he puts in.)

That morning, we had decided we would have spaghetti for dinner. By lunchtime, Chris suggested we put some venison in it for some extra flavor. And then in the mail, I received the Kraft Food & Family Magazine. After looking through it, they had a meatball recipe that sounded pretty good! We've never made meatballs before and I thought it would be something the kids would eat. We also made their Tomato-Basil Cream Sauce, which is at the end of the recipe.

Although Chris did add a few extra spices, I don't think he added too much to change the flavor. And let me tell you, it was fantastic! It was such a cheap meal to make too: $1 for the sauce, $1 for the noodles, the venison was free from hunting, and the stuffing I've had in the pantry since Thanksgiving (and had a "best-by" date that ended at the end of the week...perfect timing!). I hope you give it a try and enjoy it as much as we did!
