Spaghetti Meatball Bake
Total TimePrep: 45 min. Bake: 30 min.
The meatballs were not great. I did not think these worth making again.
These meatballs are delicious! I made a mistake following the recipe and threw the bread crumbs in with everything else for the meatball mixture. I think they still turned out good. I also like the taste of the sauce from the spice mixture.
We loved this recipe! Having the pasta baked inside the meatballs was a neat twist, and the dinner was so tasty and filling.
Thank you all for your reviews!!
These meatballs were very tasty, and including the chopped, cooked spaghetti in them was an interesting recipe twist. The only changes I made were to use my own pasta sauce and I used whole milk mozzarella cheese. Coating them in bread crumbs before baking added a nice crust. Very good recipe!
The best meatbAlls I've had!! I did serve these over spaghetti instead of putting the spaghetti it the meatball mixture. I only did this bc of how many meatballs it made. I served this when I had company over and it was a huge hit.
My kids thought this was really fun. I really liked the breadcrumb crust on the outside! I made a half recipe with 12 larger meatballs and it fit perfectly in a 9 x 9 square pan.
Great recipe but I thought it took quite a bit of time to prepare. I agree with everyone else's comments--I had the same experience. My kids are grown up but I would make this again to serve to little kids who might ask "How did the spaghetti get in the meatballs!!??"
I love this idea! I thought about cutting the recipe in half but decided it would make a great freezer meal. The bread crumbs on the outside give the meatballs a nice crust without them getting dried out and the flavor is right on target. I'm going to bring this to our Italian Night pot luck.
Awesome recipe. Might take time and be a bit of a pain, but well worth the effort. I have shared this recipe with all my friends and they love it too. My husband really doesn't care for meatballs, but this has changed his mind. I cooked the spaghetti broken up, but then placed in 2 c. measuring cup and cut up further with my kitchen scissors.
