Spaghetti and Meatballs is something the whole family can enjoy. Make lower fat meatballs by using extra-lean ground beef, and adding tomato sauce and chopped onion to keep them moist. The meatballs are baked, not fried, and then simmered in a low fat marinara sauce.

Prep Time: 25 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes Total Time: 55 minutes< span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> Servings: 4


3/4 pound extra-lean ground beef

1/3 cup breadcrumbs (about 1 slice)

1 tsp dried oregano

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1/4 cup canned no-salt-added tomato sauce

1 garlic clove, crushed

1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped

2 1/2 cups low fat, low sodium marinara sauce (such as Amy's or Trader Joe's)

8-ounces spaghetti or angel hair pasta


Preheat oven to 400 degrees, and spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Crumble ground beef into a large mixing bowl. Add breadcrumbs, oregano, onion, tomato sauce, garlic and parsley. Combine ingredients thoroughly, either with fingers or with a fork.

Roll meatball mixture into 1-inch balls and place on cookie sheet. You should have about 20 meatballs. Bake in the oven for 16-18 minutes, turning once in the middle of cooking.

Cook spaghetti in a large pot according to package directions, without added salt or oil. In a large pan, heat marinara sauce; add cooked meatballs to the sauce and simmer until the pasta is ready.
