Recipe: Spaghetti & Meatballs

20160322food_spaghetti01

Michael and Gavin both love all types of pasta dishes. Going through my recipe box, I came across an old recipe for a copycat Monjuni’s spaghetti sauce. I made a couple of changes, added meatballs, and a new family favorite was made! This is a super easy recipe, and I can keep everything on hand to make whenever the mood strikes.

Servings: 8
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 12 hours

Ingredients
2 (28 ounce) cans tomato puree
2 tablespoons basil
2 tablespoons oregano
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon onion powder
12 teaspoon black pepper
1 (1 pound) package of frozen meatballs
thin spaghetti

Directions
1. Combine tomato puree, basil, oregano, garlic, olive oil, onion powder, black pepper, and frozen meatballs in a large pot, cover, and simmer for at least 1 hour.

2. Cook spaghetti.

3. Serve sauce over spaghetti. I usually make garlic bread to go with it.

I put the cook time as 1 12 hours, but sometimes I cook the sauce a little longer. Also, you could substitute ground beef for the meatballs, or the sauce can be made without adding any meat. This is easy to make and we all enjoy it.
