Easy to make. Very tasty, a new fav. for spagetti. Made triple meatballs and froze to use later. Making sauce again now.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. prepare the bread crumbs by placing 3 pieces of bread on a baking sheet and bake at 250 degrees for 10 minutes (or until dry).
  2. then remove the bread from the oven and soak in water for 2 to 3 minutes (this will affect the gluten in the bread giving it better texture and taste). Squeeze as much water out as possible.
  3. combine all the meatball ingredients together and knead for 3 minutes. form into meatballs, place on cookie sheet lined with foil and bake at 375 for 15 minutes (or until cooked through).
  4. while meatballs are cooking in oven combine sauce ingredients into a large saucepan and simmer.
  5. once meatballs are removed from oven place them into sauce and continue to simmer for 30 minutes (spaghetti can be made at this time).
  6. add meatballs and sauce to favorite spaghetti and enjoy.
