This is one of my favorites now - regularly in the rotation. It's Conrad's grandmothers spaghetti with meatballs. These meatballs ROCK. I made this Friday night. Look how delightful!!!
1 lb of ground beef
1/2 lb of italian sausge - I get the kind in casings and just make a slit and pull out the meat - usually if there are 5 sausages in there, I use 3 for this recipe. Freeze the other 2
4 pieces of toast / ripped into tiny pieces
2 tbsp of chili powder
1 tbsp of garlic powder
handful of parmasean cheese
1 onion- chopped fine
I just dump all that in a bowl - and mix it up with my hands. I make meatballs with it - and bake them for 30 minutes at 350. His grandma makes her own sauce, but I don't. I never have time. I just pour some Ragu or Prego or something in a pan when the meatballs are done, transfer them to the pan and let them just sit in there on med/low while my noodles are cooking.
Good stuff, takes no time at all! It's one of Conrad's favorites. I never liked italian sausage until I started making this. Now I love it.
