  • i buy the Prego with mini meatballs in it.Meatballs are a pain to make.I used to bake them on a grated pan so the grease dripped off. Ground chuck with Italian herbs and a few beaten egg whites mixed in.

  • i don't always make it the same way each time.. but I always leave the noodles & sauce separate until ready to be served.. sometimes I add onion & or bell pepper to the meat or fresh tomatoes.. I rarely make meatballs, but use already made frozen ones.

  • I call what you make spaghetti and meat SAUCE. This is what I do and it takes just a little more time. I mix chop meat, bread crumbs, an egg, salt, pepper and mozz cheese in a bowl. Sometimes I add chopped spinach too. I fill a big pot with a large jar of tomato sauce. I make balls out of the meat mixture and drop right in the sauce. I mix it gently so every ball is covered with sauce. Then I cover and let simmer for about an hour. It's really good, and not that hard. Good luck!

  • I make meatballs the same as I make meatloaf - just in small balls. I bake them, then if we want spag & meatballs I throw them in the sauce.

  • This is the most divine method of meatball making ever! You want them to be fluffy-- not dense thick bricks of meat. You can use any kind of ground meat for this: turkey, beef, etc.
