Cheesy Meatballs in Sweet Tomato Sauce

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

One of our many family favourites are definitely meatballs.
I love making Swedish meatballs, oven baked meatballs and whatnot.
Yesterday, tough, I made meatballs in sweet and tangy tomato sauce, served over a bed of pasta and topped with melted cheese. Yummy!
I know I’m usually on the healthy side but I love to indulge myself, especially in this juicy explosion of flavors. It is totally worth it!
