The World's best Spaghetti and Meatballs


Are you kidding me? This is AWESOME! Where has this recipe been all my life? It has such basic ingredients but it is to die for. It also makes quite a bit. We ate it for about 3 days straight and no one was complaining. 

Ok, so plan ahead. There isn't a ton of work, but the sauce does need to cook for 2 hours. Once it's on the stove, you're home-free. It's SO worth planning ahead. I can't wait to make it again. Oh and please serve it over whole-wheat pasta. YUM!!

And of course, for my 2-year-old son's sake, we had to sing "On top of old Smokey" at the dinner table. No mocking, please. It's just one of those things we have to do as parents to make our children giggle.

Enjoy!

1 lb. ground beef
1 c. bread crumbs
1 T. dried parsley
1 T. Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/8 tsp. garlic powder

Sauce 
3/4 c. onion, chopped

2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. white sugar
1 bay leaf
1 (6-oz.) can tomato paste
3/4 tsp. dried basil

f.y.i., the sauce is the same recipe as a knockoff for "RAGU". and I love ragu so i'll try it!
