Spaghetti Cheese Balls with Tomato Sauce

This month I got very different theme for 1st week i.e. Meatless Dishes, means non-vegetarian recipes without meat or egg stuff. I’m vegetarian foodie and never taste and tried any non-veg food. My friends, who love non veg food, always told me that main taste of any non-veg stuff is comes through whole spices and marination technique which enhance the taste of food. Most probably I tried this method or gravy style with lots of veggies which really gives me fantastic delicacies. Here I got the chance to showcase those recipes in this week on my blog under Blogging Marathon.  

Here is first recipe under this event known by Spaghetti with Meat Balls but instead of meat, prefer to use paneer or cottage cheese and now it’s known by “Spaghetti Cheese Balls with Tomato Sauce”. Under this recipe, we have to cook tomato sauce and simmer the cheese balls in it. Serve these hot tomato sauce with boiled spaghetti. If you are not spaghetti lover than you can replace the spaghetti with any form of pastas or even rice also.

For cheese balls, you have to blend the paneer with herbs and bread and prepare small sized balls and fry them. Again if you are not preferred cottage cheese than replace with boiled and mashed potatoes. Now check how to prepare spaghetti cheese balls with tomato sauce.
