This may not be the fanciest spaghetti recipe you’ll ever eat but it’s super easy to prep and tastes great. I see this as a weekday, oh crap it’s nearly dinner time, quick dinner. I love to take low-cost ingredients and elevate them so the family thinks I’ve been in the kitchen for hours.


  • [S] 1 can Hunts Mushroom spaghetti sauce
  • [S] 1 can petite diced tomatoes
  • [S] 1 small can white button mushrooms
  • [S] 1 tsp onion powder
  • [S] 2 T Italian seasoning
  • [S] 1 tsp kosher salt
  • [S] 1 tsp black pepper
  • [S] 1 tsp white sugar
  • [S] 1 T olive oil
  • [M] ½ lb Ground Turkey or Lean Beef
  • [M] ½ lb Pork Sausage
  • [M] 1 large egg
  • [M] 1 c breadcrumbs
  • [M] 1 T Italian seasoning
  • [M] 1 tsp kosher salt
  • [M] 1 tsp black pepper
  • [M] 2 T onion flakes
  • [M] 2 T shredded parmesan cheese
  • [M] 1 T Worcester sauce
  • [Other] 1 lb spaghetti noodles


Sauce: In large saucepan saute mushrooms until golden. Add remaining [S] ingredients and simmer over medium heat until ready to serve. Meatballs: Preheat oven to 425 F. In a large bowl combine all [M] ingredients. If too dry add a splash of milk, if too wet add more breadcrumbs. Roll mixture into walnut (or your favorite size) sized balls and bake for 30 minutes or balls temp over 170 F. Noodles: Fill a large stock pot ¾ with water and bring to a boil. Season generously with salt. Add noodles and boil for 8 to 10 minutes (or following package directions) until al dente. Drain noodles and serve immediately with sauce and meatballs.


Make sure there's extra parmesan for topping the finished plates and for some cheesy bread!
