Pasta and “No-Meat-Balls”

Finding a substitute for mince and making spaghetti and meatballs was super easy once we tried Naturli brand mince! This very versatile mince makes great “meatballs”, burgers, taco filling, “mince” replacement for pasta, etc! It’s super delicious and takes on any flavours you season it with really well!

One of our staples is pasta and “no-meat-balls” here in our house. These balls of deliciousness coupled with a homemade pasta sauce is the ultimate comfort food!
