In my recipe for today (and some of the succeeding posts) in Cooking for Two, I'll be whipping up dishes using a particular brand name product. Nope, this is not a sponsored section of my blog, but these are brand that I patronize and love using in most of my cooking. Today, I'll be using Hunt's Spaghetti Sauce - Parmesan Cheese.
During my Mom's time, you only have fresh tomatoes, tomato paste or ketchup in making your own pasta sauce and only to be disappointed with the result because it doesn't taste good. Nowadays, there are lots of pasta sauces that are available in the market, inexpensive and makes cooking a lot easier. One of my favorite tomato based sauce is Hunt's Spaghetti Sauce - Parmesan Cheese, it's sweet and has an aromatic Parmesan cheese flavor, perfect for kids.
Hunt's Parmesan Cheese - Spaghetti with Meatballs
250g Hunt's Spaghetti Sauce - Parmesan Cheese
200gms. Cooked Spaghetti
3 cloves garlic, minced

chopped green onions
Italian seasoning (for added taste) optional
- Heat oil in pan. Pan fry the meatballs until slightly brown. Set aside.
- In the same pan, saute the shallots and garlic.

- When the sauce starts to boil, add the meatballs, red bell pepper and olives.
- For added taste, season with pepper and Italian seasoning
- Place cooked spaghetti in a deep bowl while it's hot, add butter, green onions and celery. Mix well.
