This is a delicious Meatball Noodles recipe in which meatballs are dipped in tangy sauce and combined with egg noodles. I have added in veggies like carrot, green and red bell pepper. But it is completely optional. Adding eggs gives additional nutritional value ,especially if you are serving it to kids. Eggs can be avoided ,if you don’t like it ; this meatball noodles still taste delicious.
