Spaghetti with Soya balls

This is my 50th post and probably the last one of the year. What better way to end the year with recipe that I accidentally discovered. I am sure my vegetarian readers will be very happy with this veg version of spaghetti with meatballs. If you are planning a New Year party at home do try this recipe. It’s very healthy since the soya balls are not fried at all.
