Saute garlic in olive oil to flavor it, then remove garlic.
Brown meat balls you have made from ground beef, Wishbone and seasonings in the olive oil.
Remove meat and pour off a bit of the grease if you think it's too much for the sauce.
Add the tomatoes, paste and sauce to skillet and cook for 20 minutes.
Then add a good-sized pinch of dried parsley flakes, pinch of sweet basil and pinch of oregano.
Crumble a couple of the meat balls in sauce and add the rest of the whole meat balls to heat through while the herbs are flavoring the sauce.
Serve over cooked spaghetti and have lots of garlic bread ready.
