Classic Spaghetti and Meatballs

Spaghetti and Meatballs

1 pkg spaghetti
1 jar of your favorite sauce
1 pkg ground beef
1/2 cup of seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg
1/4 cup fresh grated parmesean
1/8 c parsley (fresh or dried)
1/2 tsp of garlic salt
1/2 tsp of onion powder
1/2 tsp salt

Start cooking your spaghetti in well salted boiling water.

In the meantime, place the ground beef in a bowl and mix in the egg, then add all the dry ingredients, and the cheese. Form large gum-ball sized balls and place them into a deep frying pan with olive oil, over medium heat. Turn the meatballs that are cooking as you form the others to put in the pan. Once the meatballs are browned on all sides, add the sauce and let them cook a little so they cook through. Spoon over the spaghetti and serve with garlic bread.

Yep. Just incase you didn't know. That's how you make spaghetti and meatballs.


  1. I would suggest using fresh basil instead of parsley. Mom taught me that. SOOOO good. And then I added my own version of processing it in a food processor with toasted pine nuts.

  2. Lol. I was actually just wondering how to make meatballs, so thanks Lis!
