Cheesy meatballs with spaghetti
"I used Italian seasonings instead of basil and doubled the recipe by adding Italian sausage along with the ground beef. These were absolutely delicious! I usually don't like meatballs because they are dry. Not these! Very moist! "- tracyboyle

DrieStone 4 weeks agoThey came out ok the first time, but I made the meatballs about 2' in diameter. After cooking the meatballs (for maybe 10 minutes) in the frying pan I cut one open to take a look and the center was still uncooked. I ended up putting them in the oven for 10-15 minutes after that. I don't think cooking in the sauce would have been enough to cook my meatballs. I also think that they need more cheese. Maybe twice as much.

latinross 2 years agoExcellent recipe. I excluded the basil in step one bc the tomato sauce already had a good basil flavor. I did add a hint of garlic tho to the mix and came out great! Definitely making this again!
missksalas 2 years agoEasy to make, unbelievably tasty, make sure the size of meatballs is small or you're in danger of making burgers! Served with cheese and basil for decor it looks like a top notch dish! Will deff make it again!
dcomortimer1013 3 years agoThis was excellent. I used parmesan cheese and it was a great alternative to bread crumbs. I baked the meatballs though and they still came out great. I will definitely make this again!
