Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • Spaghetti
  • Fresh Parsley (garnish)
  • Fresh Parmesan Reggiano
Netty's Meatballs:
  • 1 Lb Ground Beef
  • 2 Eggs
  • ½ Cup Italian Breadcrumbs
  • ¼ Cup Water
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tsp Parsley
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Garlic Salt
  • ¼ tsp Pepper
Meat Sauce:
  • 1 Lb Ground Beef
  • ⅓ Medium Sized Bell Pepper (small dice)
  • ⅓ Medium Sized Onion (small dice)
  • 2 Cloves Garlic (minced)
  • ¼ Cup Olive Oil
  • 28oz Can Crushed Tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasonings
  • ½ tsp Pepper
  • 1 Cup Purified Water
Instructions
  1. Saute Peppers & Onions and set aside
  2. Brown 1 Lb Ground Beef and toss in all the ingredients listed
  3. Bring mixture to a boil and let simmer until reduced and thickens
  4. Make Spaghetti according to directions and portion out the amount you want inside your meatball. Make sure it's not too much or else it will be cumbersome to handle. Mix the amount of meat sauce you want to the portion of spaghetti and using tin toil, wrap the spaghetti up into a ball and freeze it.
  5. For the meatballs simply mix the ingredients listed together and then press it around the frozen spaghetti ball. Once it is completely sealed you can pan fry it for 2 minutes per side on medium high heat.
  6. Once all sides have been pan fried, finish it off in a 400°F oven until the internal temperature is 165°F. This can take up to 30 minutes before the spaghetti is hot inside.
  7. Now dress the meatball with more meat sauce, grate some fresh parmesan on top and sprinkle on some fresh parsley as a finishing touch.
  8. Cut into the giant meatball and watch the spaghetti pour out from the inside like guts coming out of a dead body.
