Spaghetti and meatballs

Posted By on Sun, Dec 5, 2010 at 11:49 PM

Stick a fork in it. Dinner is ready.

With the help of a couple jars of store-bought tomato sauce, you can feed your family a hearty dinner of spaghetti and meatballs within 45 minutes or so.

These meatballs are bigger than golf balls, but smaller than tennis balls. They're not the kind that just fall apart when cut into, but they aren't the super compact kind either. You know ... the ones that look like processed meat? Well, I guess I'm trying to say they're just right. Serve them with whole wheat pasta if you want to be healthy.

Sure, there are many amazing recipes out there that require ground pork, veal, beef, fancy spices, and 5 hours of cooking. But this one is straight forward, fast, and still tasty. Perfect for a weekday meal.

I found the recipe on one of my favorite food blogs, The Amateur Gourmet. Instead of making my own sauce, I used two jars of Bertolli tomato sauce to save time. Get the recipe and check out the AG's step-by-step photos here.
