Simple & Quick Meatballs

Meatballs in Spaghetti Sauce


Would you like to spruce up your jarred spaghetti sauce? After a long day I too use jarred spaghetti sauce, but it doesn’t have to taste so bland. Try adding simple and quick homemade meatballs to the sauce. While they simmer in the sauce they add great homemade flavor.


  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound sausage
  • 1/4 onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 fine Italian Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper

Combine all of the above ingredients. Form meatballs about 1-inch in size. Place on a boiling pan sprayed with pan release and broil on high for about 7 minutes. Turn the meatballs over and broil another 7 minutes. You want the meatballs to brown slightly on both sides. Gently add these semi cooked meatballs to your warmed jarred spaghetti sauce. Over medium-low heat let the meatballs simmer in the sauce for at least 20 minutes until fully cooked. I usually have them simmering before I start cooking my pasta.
