Parmesan Meatballs

Springing forward is such a horrible mean thing to do to a person. Today was a long, tough day. I found it hard to focus and concentrate on my work. Time to make some comfort food. These meatballs over pasta were a perfect ending to a crazy day. My family enjoyed them and we are a picky meatball family. I however am on a strict diet and didn't get to enjoy them. Oh they smelled scrumptious.

I've been so MIA myself, I didn't notice you were blogging again. When did life get so stinkin' busy.

I miss your yummy recipes and posts. I seriously need to get organized again :)
The meatballs look amazing. My family loves any kind of meatball!
