Baked spaghetti and meatballs


Baked spaghetti and meatballs is a comforting and delicious dish that’s perfect for family dinners or gatherings. Here’s a simple recipe to make it:Ingredients:

1 pound (450g) ground beef
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
Salt and pepper to taste
For the spaghetti:

8 ounces (225g) spaghetti
2 cups marinara sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish (optional)

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray or olive oil.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, egg, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
Shape the meat mixture into meatballs, about 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter, and place them in the prepared baking dish.
Bake the meatballs in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until they are cooked through and browned on the outside.
While the meatballs are baking, cook the spaghetti according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the spaghetti and return it to the pot.
Add the marinara sauce to the cooked spaghetti and toss until the spaghetti is well coated.
Once the meatballs are cooked, remove them from the oven and carefully drain any excess fat from the baking dish.
Arrange the cooked meatballs over the spaghetti in the baking dish.
Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the top of the spaghetti and meatballs.
Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly.
Once done, remove the baked spaghetti and meatballs from the oven and let it cool slightly.
Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired, before serving.
Serve the baked spaghetti and meatballs hot, with additional grated Parmesan cheese on the side if desired.
Enjoy this delicious and comforting baked spaghetti and meatballs with your family and friends!
