Lady and the Tramp Spaghetti and Meatballs

We've based this recipe on Disney's classic animated flick, "Lady and the Tramp", which is about a romantic relationship between a lovable mongrel and a purebred cocker spaniel.  In one scene, Tramp and Lady gaze adoringly at each other as they share a plate of spaghetti and meatballs.

  • Yield: 5 servings (serving size: 5 meatballs, 1/2 cup sauce, 1 cup pasta, 1 tablespoon cheese, and tablespoon basil)

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground sirloin
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh onion
  • 2 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1 (25.5-ounce) jar fat-free tomato-and-basil pasta sauce, divided
  • Cooking spray
  • 5 cups hot cooked spaghetti (about 8 ounces uncooked pasta)
  • 5 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Preparation

Combine the first 6 ingredients and 2 tablespoons of pasta sauce in a medium bowl. Shape the meat mixture into 25 (1-inch) meatballs. Place a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat until hot. Add the meatballs, and cook 6 minutes, browning on all sides. Stir in remaining pasta sauce. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until the meatballs are done, stirring occasionally. Serve the meatballs over spaghetti, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and fresh basil.
