Spaghetti and meatballs in marinara sauce

Thanks to my brother-in-law, I discovered this absolutely amazing marinara sauce at Costco. Yeeeesss.. I use jarred marinara sauce! I kid you not, it’s probably one of the best marinara sauces I’ve ever tasted. Bonus? The ingredient list is completely respectable; no weird preservatives or unintelligible ingredients.

Here’s what the (empty) jar looks like:

For dinner, I just made up a quick batch of meatballs:

1.5 lbs extra lean ground beef

1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

1 egg

Freshly grated parmesan cheese

Italian seasoning

Fresh basil

Salt and pepper

Mix all the ingredients together and form into small meatballs.

Pour sauce into sauce pan while making meatballs and bring to a boil.

Add meatballs straight into sauce, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 25-30 minutes.

Serve over al dente spaghetti noodles.
