Lusog Notes

This Meatless Meatballs Spaghetti pasta recipe is high in protein which is essential for growth and development. It is also high in vitamin A that helps prevent infections by keeping the immune system healthy.

Chef's Tip

Egg whites are made of protein called albumin. This provided structure to the meatballs and helps bind the beans and vegetables without adding additional fat from the egg yolks.
