I found this recipe at This is one of my favorites! I absolutely love it. I am posting the recipe as written but I use my own recipe for marinara sauce. I also use whole wheat breadcrumbs. I find that whole wheat is a little heartier. Serving size is enough for 6 people to have two meatballs each. So keep that in mind when you make this.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook and drain spaghetti as directed on package.
  2. In large bowl, mix rice, oats, onion, bread crumbs, milk, basil, oregano, red pepper (if desired) and egg. Shape into 12 balls. Roll balls in wheat germ.
  3. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook balls in oil about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden brown.
  4. Heat pasta sauce until hot. Serve sauce and "meat" balls over spaghetti. Sprinkle with cheese.
