I did bake the meatballs just a little longer than the recipe asked. I added one small diced onion and increased the garlic in the sauce. The sauce I actually cooked in my cast iron skillet, then transferred the sauce to my rectangle West Bend slow cooker and let it simmer for a little over two hours. After the meatballs cooked, I drained the grease off of them and added them to the sauce. I let them sit in the sauce for 45 minutes. I did not add as much parmesan to the pasta as the recipe asked only because we don't have a lot. I just added enough on top to taste. My husband and two kids really enjoyed this meal, especially my youngest boy who asked for seconds. I'll make this again.
These were great and my kids loved them too. I left out the cheese and I added garlic powder. I put the spinach and green onions in my mini-chopper. That was an easy way to get them chopped into very smal pieces. Adding shredded vegetables to jarred sauce is a great way to get my kids to eat more vegetables. We will be making this again!
This is coming from someone who doesn't usually like ground turkey and has never had a meatball they liked either..... These were so good!! We only made the meatball portion of this recipe so I can't speak to the spaghetti but they were delicious. I took the bread crumbs down to 1/2 a cup and increased the parm cheese up to a cup. Awesome.
I liked this a lot and so did my son. There seems to be a little something missing in the flavor of the meatballs but it was still great! I'll make it again and try to find the ingredient I'm missing. Right off-hand I'm going to say worchestershire.
yumm! & I froze half for later - they were also delicious!
Loved this recipe. My husband, who hates spinach, and other green veggies, ate every bite!
Made this tonight, it was delicious. We just made fresh pasta and used jarred marinara with the meatball recipe. It was very tasty, I did add garlic powder to the meatball recipe (as we love garlic in everything). Will make this recipe again!
Amazing!!!!! Made them with ground chicken and the kids loved them!!!!!
