    This was my second time cooking dinner for my Girlfriend and her sons, but it turnwd out well! The meatballs stole the show and everyone enjoyed the meal. The sauce was a little thin, but i admit i added 1/2 lb extra ground beef and only 24oz of spaghetti sauce.

    I made the meatballs but with only beef and without the parsley and basil (cause I’m not a fan of either of those in general), and they turned out great!! Whole family loves them!

    These were very good. I used beef and hot Italian sausage meat, used 2 eggs, and used homemade marinara rather than water. Very light. Only made the meatballs. Made about 48 in total.

    Perfect!! Instead of putting them in the sauce (1 kid doesn’t like sauce) I just baked them for an extra few minutes!! My family looks forward to meatball and spaghetti night! GO DAD!! :)
