My father's mother (grandma anderson) gave me my very own cookbook of the families recipes when I graduated high school. And I was tickled pink when I saw I had received the famous Spaghetti and meatballs recipe. I love this dish more than any other dish, on my father's side of the family. And, it tastes better the next day,after all the noodles have soaked in all the flavors. This Spaghetti is one of those dishes you're not completely sure about with the first taste,but by the time you're done with your plate,you'll be asking for seconds. No other spaghetti compares to this recipe. Promise ;)

Simmer on low-med for about 45 to an hour, stirring continuously.Add meatballs to sauce once all browned. the meatballs with soak in all the juices.

I hope you will find my grandmother Anderson's Spaghetti and meatballs your new favorite spaghetti from here on out.



** Double the sauce if you like more sauce than meatballs**, Always better to have more sauce than not enough, incase you really love it.


My kids LOVE this recipe, they wont eat any other kind of spaghetti, When I made this for the first time for my husband, I was so neverous, but, he took one bite, and got up from the table and came over and gave me a big kiss, and said, " it is different, but i like it, it kinda taste's like a sweet BBQ sauce" and he's been hooked ever since.

Like I said, it does taste alittle different at first, but DON'T give up on it, Its even better the next day :)

Enjoy~ and P.S. Don't forget the garlic bread :D
