Spaghetti & Meatballs in Ninja Cooking System

Kim Biegacki


Well, I invested in the Ninja Cooking System and much to my surprise it has been amazing so far. I was somewhat of a skeptic...but wanting to believe. It does what is says it will do and then some. I am still in shock that I threw in dry pasta, water, spaghetti sauce and my own homemade uncooked frozen meatballs all in one pot and 30 minutes later; perfection! The pasta was al dente & the meatballs the moistest & tender I have ever had.

Talk about convenience and ease, this product is it!

How to Make Spaghetti & Meatballs in Ninja Cooking System


  • 1Ninja Cooking System --
  • 2Pour 4 cups of water into pot. Place your dry pasta down into the water. No need to break in half unless you want to. Add your sauce and the frozen meatballs.
  • 3Set the oven to 300 F for 25 minutes. Cover and cook until pasta is tender and meatballs done. Stir occasionally while cooking. (I used my own homemade uncooked meatballs and they turned out delicious. I did cook for 7 addtl minutes.

    If you use a thinner sauce use 1/2 cup less water.
  • 4Serve immediately right from the pot. You can lift out and take it to the table with lid on. Serve this with some Italian bread and a nice salad. A perfect meal. I am still amazed how the pasta came out al dente and the meatballs were the moistest I have ever had!!
