Super Easy Spaghetti and Meatballs


  • 1 pound uncooked 93 percent lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup dried plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3/4 pound uncooked whole-wheat spaghetti
  • 24 ounces bottled reduced fat pasta sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh, chopped basil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or line with aluminum foil coated with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine beef, breadcrumbs, cheese, egg, Italian seasoning, and salt. Roll into thirty 1 1/4-inch meatballs and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake until cooked through, shaking pan every 5 minutes for even browning, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. While meatballs are baking, cook spaghetti according to package instructions and pour sauce into a large saucepan over medium-low heat to warm.
  4. When ready to eat, toss meatballs with sauce and serve over spaghetti; garnish with basil.
