A true comfort food I grew up with. My mom made this recipe for many loved ones over the years. I'm blessed that she taught me how to make this since she's no longer with us. Thanks mom... xoxoxo

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For Meatballs: Put all ingredients into a mixing bowl. Use hands to incorporate all ingredients. With a mini scoop or a tablespoon form meatballs and brown in a skillet, turning to brown on all sides. Not necessary to cook all the way through. Put aside after browning.
  2. For Spaghetti Sauce: Brown ground chuck along with your chopped onions and green peppers. Breaking up meat finely. Drain off any grease after browned. Add in your mushrooms, tomato paste, tomato sauce, water, garlic salt, oregano, pepper, sugar and parmesan cheese. Once the sauce has warmed up, then you may taste to see if you would like any additional garlic. At this time add your meatballs back into your sauce. Let this simmer all day long, the longer the better. Cook your pasta and serve with your sauce and meatballs -- enjoy.
