Spaghetti & Meatballs

Everyone has a favorite recipe for Spaghetti & Meatballs. Here's mine:

Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

2 T olive oil
1 c onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 28oz cans crushed tomatoes in puree
2 c beef broth
3 t fresh or freeze dried basil
2 t dried parsley
1 t kosher salt
1/2 t black pepper

Heat oil in a large stock pot over medium heat and add onions and garlic. Cook 3-4 minutes until tender. Add all tomatoes, broth, spices and stir well. Bring to boil and reduce heat to low. Simmer on low 1-2 hours (or longer) stirring occasionally so it doesn't burn! Makes about 10 one cup servings. It freezes well too!

Beef Meatballs

1 lb lean ground beef
1 egg
2 T milk
1/4 c bread crumbs (I use one slice of whole wheat, processed into crumbs)
1/4 cup onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t kosher salt
1/4 t pepper

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients (except the beef) and mix well. Add in beef and mix with fork or your hands. Make 20 meatballs (I use a small cookie scoop so they're about 1 1/2" each). Bake 20 minutes. Add to sauce, after it's ready, and keep warm. Enjoy!
