Every time someone gets to mention spaghetti an automatic response of meat balls is given, then my mouth gets watery, my stomach rumbles and I get instantly hungry.

Meat balls and pasta sauce always go together since they compliment each other, but when you incorporate a vegan kind of “meat balls” and pasta sauce you wonder how that would taste. The taste is definitely different but GOOD different. Scratch that ‘its DELICIOUS”.
