Spaghetti with Spinach Meat Balls

Please see the updated version of this recipe at my new site, Everyday Made Fresh.

Hide those veggies and your kids will be none the wiser.  Seriously!  This recipe is from none other than Pinterest. :-)  I love that place. 
When I saw this recipe I knew that I had to make it. I'm not a veggie eating person. I mean I like salads but the other veggie stuff I'm not to fond of. I know that I need to consume more of it and what better way than to hide it! Plus if you have picky kids and want them to eat more veggies this will totally work. What kid doesn't like spaghetti and meat balls?!

Another great recipe. I might have to give it a shot. We are also not spinach people. But if we can sneak it in, then that would be great. I did try the corn dogs. They were messy but very good. Thanks again for always sharing your recipe finds.
Have a great day!
