Spaghetti with meatballs is one Italian dish no one can ignore. It is the easiest dinner or lunch item you can cook if you're too bored to cook a big meal. Simply boiled spaghetti with ketchup or chili sauce can be tasty, healthy and filling. If you are working and are tired of cooking after a day's work, a bowl of hot steaming spaghetti noodles with salsa sauce can be a yummy treat for you and your family. The concept that you have to boil spaghetti to cook it is long forgotten since we have microwaves now. It can take less than 10 minutes to have your dinner ready to be served.
