Do you ever make meatsauce and meatballs in one meal?

i have some ground beef that is going to be used tonight in my meatsauce for spaghetti. but, i also bought a package of little frozen meatballs that i know the kids will love (and so do i cause theyre yummy!) and kinda want to make them too. but im also thinking this might be an overkill of meat! would you make both, or one or the other? if i make them along with the meatsauce, itll probably only be 2-3 per person and they are tiny.

***we all know home-made meatballs are better/healthier so no need for a lesson in nutrition thank you***

  • I think it would be good together. When I make meatballs there is always a little extra meat and I cook it off and add it to the sauce so I think it would be good.

  • I'd do one or the other. Both will be overkill IMO.

  • Nope, we do one or the other, not both.

  • Meatless spaghetti sauce is not tasty at all. I would definitely do both. You did say the meatballs are small and it's not like protein is bad at all.

  • The meat sauce and the meatballs will be delicious.....not overkill

  • Either way will be yummy but I would save the meatballs for sandwiches.

  • okay i guess it will have to be the meat-sauce then because its been sitting in the fridge all day and must be cooked. =/ oh well i will find something creative to do with the meatballs one day this week. thanks ladies! :)
