Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or line with aluminum foil sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
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.
While meatballs are baking, cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Pour sauce into a large saucepan over medium-low heat to warm.
When ready to eat, toss meatballs with sauce and serve over spaghetti; garnish with basil.
