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! "


Are you making this? 
1 pound lean ground beef; (500 grams)
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)
1 Basil leaves; to serve

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.

Add salt to the meatballs.

After you brown the meatballs put them in a baking dish pour sauce over them cover and bake. It distributes the flavor into the sauce and your meatballs stay juicy. Cook for about 15-20 min on 350

It was easy to make however correction: don't use medium heat for the sauce for twenty min. It burns the sauce. True story. Lesson learned. Your better off microwaving the pasta sauce instead.
