Spaghetti and meatballs can be as fancy or as simple as you want it to be. Make it your own by adding spices, veggies, or other ingredients to your family’s favorite pasta sauce.
8 ounces Anthony's® Spaghetti
1/2 pound lean ground beef or turkey
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/8 cup milk
1 clove garlic, minced or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (26- to 30-ounce) jar pasta sauce
1In a large bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, onion, milk, egg, garlic, and pepper. Mix all ingredients until well combined.
2Using your hands, shape the meat mixture into one-inch-size meatballs (approximately 10-12 meatballs).
3Place meatballs onto a baking sheet, and bake 15-20 minutes or until internal temperature of meatballs reaches 165°F.
4While meatballs are cooking, cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain well.
5In a large skillet, heat pasta sauce until simmering. When meatballs are cooked, add to pasta sauce and heat until desired temperature is reached.
6Add cooked spaghetti to a large platter or bowl, top with meatballs and sauce; garnish with additional Parmesan cheese.
Cook’s Tips: For a spicier meatball, use ground Italian sausage or add your family’s favorite herbs and spices to the meat mixture.
For more veggies, add whatever fresh or leftover vegetables you have on hand to the pasta sauce prior to adding the meatballs.
