Spaghetti & Meatballs

So I'd like to make some good homemade meatballs for spaghetti. I normally just use the ground beef and brown it when I make spaghetti. I add a lot of bell peppers, onions, mushrooms etc to have a pretty hearty sauce. I'd like to take it to a simpler style with just the traditional meatballs in a marinara sauce. Does anyone have any good meatball recipes. I have found a few on foodnetwork.com but I'd love some input from anyone who does this regularly. Thanks guys!

I don't have any good meatball recipes, but I'm always cooking and have a recipe blog, so I might have some over there. I'll take a look and let you know. Spagetti and Italian dishes are some of my family's favorites and I'm always cooking them. Most times I make my own sauce as it's healthier and I control the sodium and ingredients. I'll try to post some recipes on this subject. Be well. Happy cooking.

Hello, I make this every week and my whole family loves it. I make this for 6 people. Use 1 1/2 pounds ground beef, 1/4 cup italian breadcrumbs, dried oregano and basil to taste. Garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. 2 teaspoons olive oil or 1 egg. I combine all together and then form the meatballs. I fry in a pan until they are browned and then pour Prego sauce on top. Serve with spaghetti. If you have leftover meatballs you can meatball sandwiches with this too! Enjoy!

That sounds fantastic. I usually buy everything premade and just cook it. Sometimes my mom or my sister would make it from scratch when I was a kid, though. It was so good.
