Bake a batch of these meatballs over the weekend for a quick weeknight supper the whole family will love.


Uncooked 93% lean ground beef

1 pound(s)

Grated Parmesan cheese

¼ oz


1 large egg(s)

Italian seasoning

1½ tsp(s)

Kosher salt

1½ tsp(s)

Uncooked whole wheat spaghetti

¾ pound(s)

Bottled reduced fat pasta sauce

24 oz

Fresh basil

¼ cup(s), fresh, chopped

Dried plain breadcrumbs

¼ tbsp(s)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or line with aluminum foil coated with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine beef, breadcrumbs, cheese, egg, Italian seasoning and salt. Roll into thirty 1 1/4-inch meatballs and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake until cooked through, shaking pan every 5 minutes for even browning, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. While meatballs are baking, cook spaghetti according to package instructions and pour sauce into a large saucepan over medium-low heat to warm.
  4. When ready to eat, toss meatballs with sauce and serve over spaghetti; garnish with basil. Yields about 5 meatballs and 1 cup spaghetti with sauce per serving.


These meatballs freeze well and also make great sub sandwiches.
