Baked Spaghetti and Meatballs

Susan Feliciano


Simple, yet homemade. You can prepare your own meatballs, or use some ready-made from the meat case at your grocer's. Frozen meatballs work, also. Types of cheeses can be varied as well as the fresh herb seasonings.

How to Make Baked Spaghetti and Meatballs


  1. Cook meatballs according to package directions until done, internal temperature of 160°F. While meatballs are cooking, cook spaghetti noodles in boiling water until al dente, according to package directions.
  2. Drain spaghetti and combine with pasta sauce in a greased 2-1/2 quart baking dish. Top with meatballs, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheeses.
  3. Bake at 350°F until cheese is melted and golden brown, about 20 minutes. Garnish with fresh basil and serve.
    We like this with salad and Italian or garlic bread.
