Easy Spaghetti and Meatballs


This is one of the first meals my daughters made when learning to cook. A very kid-friendly recipe. Goes especially well with Quick and Easy Breadsticks.

1 pound ground sausage
1/2 cup saltine crackers, crushed
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons minced onion
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Favorite Spaghetti Sauce
10 oz. spaghetti

In large bowl, combine ground sausage, crackers, Italian seasoning, minced onion, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Mix well. Form into "golf ball-sized" meatballs. Spray a large skillet with cooking oil and heat. Add meatballs and cook for 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally until browned all the way through. Add your favorite spaghetti sauce and simmer for 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large cooking pot, boil 4 quarts water with 1 teaspoon salt. Cook spaghetti as directed for 10-11 minutes. Drain. To serve, pour meatball sauce over spaghetti. Serves 4-6. Enjoy!
