When you want to show off, this is something you want to pick and cook up a storm for your loved ones. You can premake the meatballs and freeze them just until they are ready to be used in the recipe. That way not only you will make your life easier but also you will have more time to spend with your guests. When it comes to pasta type in this recipe, you can totally use any kind of pasta you want, but I think the smaller the pasta is, the better results you will get.
