Mario's Meatballs and Spaghetti

I know, How cliche - Mario Spaghetti and Meatballs? But hey, its much easier than lasagna and tastier too in my opinion! This is super easy because the meatballs are baked in the oven, so they are juicy and they melt in your mouth! 

"Its-a meee Mario!"

Level: Noob
Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 4 or more

The Goods:

One package Spaghetti noodles

For Meatballs:
1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground pork
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

For sauce:
1 onion diced
5 mushrooms, diced
2 garlic loves minced
a little olive oil
2 tins chopped tomatoes
1 teaspoon sugar


Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. 

In a bowl combine ground beef, pork, garlic salt and pepper.

Form into meatballs. You can make several small ones or medium sized.

Place meatballs in casserole or baking pan and cook in the oven for about 10 minutes.

Boil pot of water and cook spaghetti per cook-time on packaging. 

To make sauce:

Fry the onion & garlic in a little oil until softened (about 5 minutes). 

Add the mushrooms and fry for another few minutes. 

Add the tomatoes & sugar, and let simmer for 5 minutes.

 Pour overthe meatballs & return to the oven for 15 minutes.

Serve on top of cooked spaghetti and top with fresh parmesan cheese!
