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! "

1 egg; lightly beaten
1 cup grated cheese, tasty
1 onion; finely chopped
1/4 cup basil; chopped
1 tbs olive oil
1 jar tomato; onion & basil chunky sauce
1 pound dried spaghetti; (400 grams)

What a great dish! I added some chopped smokey bacon to the meatballs along with some chilli. Thanks for sharing.

I have always been intimidated by making homemade meatballs. This recipe was so easy and incredibly delicious. My whole family loved it! The only thing I changed was, I used 1 pound of ground beef and half a pound of mild Italian ground sausage.

First time I've ever made meatballs and they were a hit! I think I made them a bit too big, but I followed another user's advice to bake them in the oven and they turned out great! I used a sundried tomato, garlic and basil sauce with them.
