Whenever my kids get bored with daily rice and chapaties,they insists me to try something new. So for them I keep searching new recipes and try new cuisines. As a result they love Italian cuisine very much. To day made pasta with meatballs. I tried to keep my pasta as light and simple with minimal seasoning. It tastes yum! So let’s start with the recipe…
