So, you have a hungry mob to feed on games night, what do you do?

We have the answer, easy to make games night meals for everyone . . .

Adapted from a pizza sauce with added meatballs everyone is sure to love this dish with a sprinkle of cheese ontop. Mike loves eat this with spaghetti, it tastes great. However the possibility of slurping and splashing sauce all over lovely games led to us substituting with Fusilli. We leave it to you to choose a pasta preference.
