Simple Spaghetti Meatballs

Feeling a little bit lazy today, I decided to make spaghetti meatballs for dinner. I could prepare the meatballs earlier in the day, cook them up later in the evening and have a meal ready in about 20 minutes. Let me show you how easy it is to make!

First, I'll show you how to make the meatballs. You need about 1lbs of ground beef. Put that in a big bowl and crack an egg in the middle.
Add in some black pepper, parsley flakes, chopped garlic, grated cheese and bread crumbs.

Mix everything up. Do not be afraid to get your hands dirty. Make sure that it's all mixed up well. Pour some bread crumbs in a separate plate. Roll and press the ground beef firmly into balls. Coat it with breadcrumbs. When you roll the meatballs, make sure it's coated evenly.

Once you are done making the meatballs, you can cover it with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook them.

This is how to make the complete dish. Cook your spaghetti in boiling water until its al dente. While your spaghetti is cooking, heat up some oil in a frying pan. Fry up the meatballs until its cooked through and golden brown.

Set it aside on some paper towels once its cooked. In another pan, heat up some pasta sauce from a bottle. You can use which ever marinara or meat sauce that you like. I would usually add in some Italian seasoning and black pepper to give it that extra kick. Once the sauce is heated up, toss in the meatballs and mix it into the sauce. Continue to cook it for another few minutes, then the sauce is ready!

Mix in your spaghetti with the meatballs sauce and serve.

There you go. Simple home made spaghetti meatballs!!
