There's no pairing more classic than spaghetti and meatballs. This quintessential pasta dish gives you everything you want and need: a big plate of spaghetti, lots of marinara sauce, and huge hunks of meat (or the veggie equivalent) to satisfy your soul. It's a beautiful thing, truly. Which is why just one recipe isn't enough.
