Penne Pasta With Fish Balls - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
My innovation of the Italian-American spaghetti with meat balls. I have used Penne pasta instead of spaghetti and fish balls instead of meat balls. The outcome is quite great, if you love sea food you would love the change. And also the fish balls are baked so that's a brownie point!
