  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 large Egg beaten
  • 1/4 cup Breadcrumbs


  • 12 ounces Spaghetti Noodles
  • 25 ounces Pasta Sauce


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  • In a large bowl mix the ground beef, beaten egg, and breadcrumbs together. Form the mixture into 2-inch round balls and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake in the oven for 23 minutes, or until the meatballs have cooked through completely and there’s no pink in the middle (usually no more than 25 minutes).
  • While the meatballs are cooking, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once the water begins to bubble place the noodles in the water, making sure to fully immerse them. Cook for about 12 to 15 minutes (or according to the al dente package directions). Remove from heat and use a colander to drain the water.
  • Place the noodles back into the pot and pour the entire pasta sauce jar in. Toss the pasta sauce with the noodles.
  • Layer the pasta on your plate and place the meatballs on top of the pasta.
