DIRECTIONS

  • Meatballs: Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C). Combine soup mix with egg, bread crumbs, basil, oregano, thyme and pepper. Crumble in beef and using your hands to gently combine. Form beef into 28 meatballs, each about 1-in (2.5 cm) in diameter. Set meatballs on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, turning twice, or until cooked through. Transfer to an 8 cup (2 L) casserole dish.
  • Sauce: Place half the can of tomatoes in a blender and pulse until smooth. Blend in tomato paste, garlic and pepper. Stir in remaining diced tomatoes. Pour sauce mixture over the meatballs. Bake for 30–35 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Sprinkle shredded cheese over the centre of the dish for the last 5 minutes of baking. Serve with hot, cooked spaghetti.
