You haven't made meatballs until you've made them with Jimmy Dean® Pork Sausage. This is a tastier way to make your classic spaghetti and meatballs.

  • 1/3 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix ingredients just until blended.

  2. Shape into 30 (1-inch) balls; place in single layer in 2 lightly greased shallow baking pans.

  3. Bake 12-14 minutes or until done (160°F).

  4. Serve with toothpicks.

  5. Bake meatballs as directed. Meanwhile, heat your favorite spaghetti sauce in large saucepan. Stir meatballs into sauce. Serve over hot cooked pasta.
