A classic Italian-American dish that can be as simple or fancy as you want it to be.
1-1/2 pound lean ground beef
4 slices whole grain bread, torn into small pieces
1 jar (1 lb. 10 oz.) Ragu® Old World Style® Pasta Sauce
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
12 ounces spaghetti, cooked and drained
How to Make It
Combine ground beef, bread, eggs, 1/2 cup Pasta Sauce, Italian seasoning and garlic powder in medium bowl; shape into 18 meatballs.
Bring remaining Pasta Sauce to a boil over medium-high heat in 3-quart saucepan. Gently stir in uncooked meatballs. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes or until meatballs are done.
Serve over hot spaghetti.
TIP: Try adding a cube of mozzarella cheese to the center of each meatball for an easy but fun recipe twist.
