Baked Spaghetti & Meatballs Recipe
A staple meal that looks like it took hours to make gets a revamp with this shortened recipe
- 4 oz spaghetti
- 2 cups tomato sauce
- 16 frozen cooked meatballs
- 1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
- 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil
Preheat oven to 400F. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.
Meanwhile, bring tomato sauce to boil in ovenproof skillet; stir in meatballs. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low; cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until meatballs are heated through. Add pasta, stirring to coat well.
Sprinkle Italian cheese blend over top; bake for 5 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Transfer to plates; garnish with basil.
Tip: Stir spinach or kale, or any leftover veggies, into sauce if desired.
This is just one of many ways that you can make spaghetti. You can either make your own tomato sauce or buy the pre-made version. Sometimes I like to buy two different flavors of the pre-made pasta sauce at the store and mix them together. You also don’t want to forget the bread.
There is also another recipe that I tried called Million Dollar Spaghetti that is good and can be baked in the oven. This is a more creamier version of spaghetti that uses cream cheese in the ingredients.
