IWAD #12- New Staple

Mark made it back home today and I cooked him a special meal of good ole "Spaghetti & Meatballs". This was pretty easy to make. This one just might become a staple at our house! I even recommend making the meatballs in marinara and serving them as appetizers at a party!

"Spaghetti & Meatballs"

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 6 ounces uncooked spaghetti
  • 3/4 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 pound hot turkey Italian sausage, casing removed
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain; cover and keep warm.
  2. Combine beef, sausage, egg white, bread crumbs and oregano in medium bowl; mix well. Shape mixture into 16 (1 1/2-inch) meatballs. Place on prepared baking sheet; coat with cooking spray. Bake 12 minutes, turning once.
  3. Pour marinara sauce into large skillet; add meatballs. Cook and stir over medium heat 9 minutes or until sauce is heated through and meatballs are cooked through (160 degrees). Serve spaghetti with meatballs and sauce; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and basil.
