Spaghetti & Meatballs

Updated on February 9, 2015

When we are expecting large crowd for dinner, we bust out the pasta pots and put on the meatballs to simmer. It is a great dinner, filling and kids love it! The kids enjoy helping make the meatballs as well! This makes a very large batch, so be prepared to feed an army! We freeze our leftovers and thaw for a quick easy dinner.

Cook Time

Prep time: 45 min
Cook time: 4 hours
Ready in: 4 hours 45 min
Yields: About 10 lb with sauce

Ingredients

  • 2 lb Ground Beef
  • 2 lb Ground Pork
  • 1 Med Onion
  • 1 Med Green Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Chopped Garlic
  • 1 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Cup Bread Crumbs Non- Seasoned
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tbsp Black Pepper
  • 3 tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • 2 (2lb 13oz) Spaghetti Sauce
  • As Needed Spaghetti or Angel Hair Pasta
  • Splash Olive Oil

Instructions

  1. Mince (small dice) the peppers and onion add to bowl.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. I have found the best way is just by using my hands.
  3. After everything is mixed together well, form into golf ball size balls.
  4. In the large sauce pot pour your favorite Spaghetti sauce, and add the meatballs. Simmer at a minimum for two hours.
  5. Make pasta as directed. When you strain the pasta out, add the olive oil to the pasta to keep it from sticking.
  6. The longer you simmer, the more flavors will come out and the meatballs become much more tender.
  7. This makes a lot, so you can freeze the leftovers. They make wonderful meatball subs! This is one of our kid’s favorite meals!
