Classic Spaghetti with Cheesy Meatballs

Classic Spaghetti with Cheesy MeatballsGenerally we consume meatballs with a spicy sauce in the form of a starter or an appetizer. Today's recipe includes regular spaghetti topped with cheesy and spicy meatballs braised in an aromatic sauce. I've used minced goat meat for the meatballs but you can use beef or chicken too. One can also experiment with the fiery sauce used for the meatballs. You can replace some of the spices with the local herbs to get a familiar taste. Although I've kept spaghetti quite simple, you can mix it with the sauce to blend both of them together in a common base. Meatballs leftovers can be added to the gravy and can be served with steamed rice. Let's make this irresistible recipe that's moist, chewy and scrumptious.
