I was planning on making spaghetti and meatballs anyhow this weekend evening. It so happened that the movie "lady and the tramp" was showing on our local Disney station. At 51 years old, I had never seen this particular Disney movie. My hubby was the one that told me about the "spaghetti scene" and that spaghetti and meatballs with bread and a glass of wine was perfect for this movie. I happened to find this recipe (perfect) The ONLY thing I did was use a whole egg. (I have a texture thing about touching raw eggs and seperating them) No one else was around to do this for me, so i just threw in whole egg. Don't think made a big difference. Delicious meal with tossed salad, bread, etc. Oh, Great movie also, don't know how I missed as a kid, as I have seen all the rest of them

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb ground sirloin
  • 14 cup minced fresh onion
  • 2 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs
  • 14 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 14 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1 (25 1/2 ounce) jar fat free tomato basil pasta sauce, divided
  • cooking spray
  • 5 cups hot cooked spaghetti (about 8 ounces uncooked pasta)
  • 5 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 5 tablespoons chopped fresh basil


  1. Combine the first 6 ingredients and 2 tablespoons of pasta sauce in a medium bowl. Shape the meat mixture into 25 (1-inch) meatballs. Place a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat until hot. Add the meatballs, and cook 6 minutes, browning on all sides. Stir in remaining pasta sauce. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until the meatballs are done, stirring occasionally. Serve the meatballs over spaghetti, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and fresh basil.
