Recipe For Pasta With Meatballs

Having made nero pasta for the first time ever I knew I had to make a sauce that would stand out – and this one for Pasta With Meatballs really did! Nero pasta, or black pasta, is made with squid ink. This is not readily available in South Africa. I found some in a small supermarket when we were in Sienna.
