You can serve the meatballs right away directly from the dutch oven. We have a running joke that we had to have two dutch ovens- one in red because it is my favorite color, and one in blue for Nancy. or you can mix them with your favorite pasta (mine is spaghetti) and serve with plenty of cheese on top, As an option, for some extra flavor and color add some chopped chives on top before you serve them.
