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

kpcolville 2 months agoFirst 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.

PJL1980 5 months agoAfter 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
Jbloom45 5 months agoIt 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.

D34thch1ld 7 months agoFirst time making meatballs turned out great!! ... if the meatballs aren't cooking through for you try covering them with a lid turn down the heat a little and turn them every so often
starlight289 10 months agoI made this for my best friend and family. I got great reviews. My hubby has asked me serve times to make this again.
DrieStone 1 year 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.
