Garlic Herb Spaghetti with Baked Chicken Meatballs is SO GOOD! plenty of lemon, butter, parsley, and a handful of Parmesan. Yum!

You will find there's pasta mix of epic proportions occurring in my lifestyle right this moment. It requires butter and garlic and herbs and refreshing greens, which then gets tossed with thick pasta and probably the most ridiculously superior rooster meatballs, which last but not least gets sprinkled with parm and squeezed with lemon. Of course. It’s straightforward. It’s a complete deliciousness bomb. It’s like spaghetti and meatballs obtained a spring makeover – you get the comforting, satisfying, not-messing-about texture of spaghetti and meatballs with some lightness (because of fresh new spinach and chicken) plus a bit additional pop and brightness through the lemon and garlic and butter.
