In a medium-size bowl mix together the beef, pork, bread crumbs, onion, parsley, garlic, eggs, salt, and pepper until just combined. Take a walnut size of the meat mixture and roll into a ball. Repeat with remaining meat and transfer to an oiled rack on a sheet tray. Bake meatballs for 15 minutes, until golden brown. Set aside.

Spaghetti and Meatballs in Marinara Sauce with authentic Italian flavors and an easy homemade recipe that’s hearty and comforting for the whole family!


  • Marinara Sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1-2 tbsp mixed fresh herbs including basil, thyme and oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 14- oz can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 cup water
  • Meatballs
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 2 garlic cloves mined
  • 1 tbsp minced onion
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Other
  • 12 oz spaghetti noodles
  • Basil for garnish
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for serving


For the marinara sauce

In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil and add the chopped onions. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the onions soften, then add the garlic and cook for another minute. Add the fresh herbs and salt/pepper to taste; then add the diced tomatoes, tomato paste and water and mix well. Bring to a gentle boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, while you form the meatballs. In a large bowl using a fork, combine all of the meatball ingredients. Gently mix with your fork to blend all the ingredients well, without over mixing. Use a cookie scoop, or measure about 2 tablespoons each, to create about 10 meatballs. Form them with your hands if necessary. Set on a plate or pan. While the sauce is simmering, place all the meatballs in the saucepan and cook in the marinara with the saucepan covered for 10-12 minutes per side. Serve the meatballs and marinara sauce over cooked spaghetti noodles and garnish with fresh basil and grated Parmesan cheese, if you desire.
