Delicious and simple recipe for spaghetti and meatballs.
"Used marinara instead of traditional spaghetti sauce like Ragu. Added fresh garlic to the meat/bread mixture... only made it better! The meatballs were quite a pain to make. Next time I'll follow the same steps, but instead of browning them on the stove I'll bake them in the oven & then transfer them to the sauce later. Made breadsticks from canned cresent roll dough to serve with it. The meal was a hit for my guys!"- Mellylissa

Saute onion in 1 tablespoon butter until it is transparent. Let the onion cool slightly. Put the slices of bread in a mixing bowl and pour milk over them to soak for a minute. Put onion, meat, egg and seasonings in the mixing bowl with the onion and blend thoroughly using your hands. Shape the mix into 1.25" (1 1/4 inch) balls and roll them in dry bread crumbs. Brown the meatballs slowly in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Drain off all but 2 tablespoons of fat. Pour in tomato sauce and simmer for 20 minutes.
In a separate pot, bring salted water to a boil and cook the spaghetti noodles as directed via the box. (I usually use wheat noodles)

Cookin4younme 10 months agoTo keep your pasta from sticking together, add about a tspn of olive oil to your cooking water. This sounds ok, I'll share mine soon.
Thatonechick 1 year agoMy family's favourite meatball recipe ever! I use quality beef from our local butcher, and use an ice cream scoop (the kind you squeeze) to make them all a uniform size. It also makes less mess as I don't have to touch it with my hands so much. Thanks for the great recipe!!

rangerwife 1 year agoMade the meatballs in the oven cause in my experience they tend to fall apart if I brown them in a pan.
