Homemade Spaghetti O's with Meatballs

Homemade Spaghetti O's with Meatballs: Savory Sweet and Satsifying

This homemade spaghetti o's recipe is my third attempt at making them at home. The first two were good, but tasted nothing like the canned variety. So I decided to try one more before giving up for a little while. Turns out the third time was the winner.

Now to be fair, this homemade recipe does not taste exactly like the canned variety, but it does not use any preservatives or weird unpronounceable ingredients. I would much rather have a homemade variety where I know exactly what is in it, then a processed canned variety. Plus this homemade variety tastes really good.

Ingredients:

Meatballs

1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs

15 ounces no salt added tomato sauce
6 ounces no salt added tomato paste

In a large bowl combine all of the meatball ingredients just until evenly combined. Roll the mixture into small balls, about 1 1/2- 2 inches. You will get approximately 40 meatballs.

Place the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until completely cooked.

In a medium saucepan, heat the tomato sauce and tomato paste, over medium heat, until heated through.
