"I was inspired by the movie "Lady and The Tramp". I loved watching it when I was a little girl. All we remember is the cute scene with 2 dogs, the bowl of spaghetti and for sure, I decided to make it. Surprisingly, it comes out so delicious and comforting, sour-sweet marinara sauce and juicy meatballs with crispy edges. Cut to the chase my husband and I had a perfect romantic dinner enjoying this pasta. I can give you a hint, I think it's a great idea for upcoming Valentine Day dinner.❤️"
