A long way back when I was in high school I wanted to try my hand at cooking. Since I loved meatballs and spaghetti, what a great way to start. No recipe in hand, I rolled up my sleeves and got to work. That night at supper, everyone had doubles and it became my job to make meatballs once a month for supper. The next few times I tweaked the recipe till I got it perfect. Throughout the next 20+ years I’ve been asked for my famous meatball recipe by family, friends, neighbors, and co workers. When my DIL saw your contest, she immediately called me to enter my meatballs.




Mix all ingredients and form into balls.



Saute onion till translucent add garlic cubes, saute 2 to 3 more minutes. Add rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower flame to medium/small add meatballs, simmer 1 hour, mixing every 15 minutes making sure nothing sticks to bottom of pot.



Serve over cooked spaghetti and enjoy.


For a healthier version, zucchini noodles (zoodles) can be used.
