Easy Spaghetti and Meatballs

Recipe by Charmie777

This is a very tasty dish that I've had lots of compliments on, even tho I cheat and use jarred sauce (shhh)...I think the slow simmering of the flavorful meatballs really makes this taste homemade all the way!!! This makes a lot, so I usually use the leftovers to make meatball subs.

Thank you for this great 5-Star recipe! I hadn't made spaghetti & meatballs for over 25 yrs. because it took too much time & effort. This recipe is so quick & easy I can't help but make it often. I added a bit of chopped onion and just a tiny bit of chopped garlic, instead of a whole clove the 2nd time I made this recipe. I used my cookie scoop to shape the meatballs & it made things go even quicker.
