what's cookin' Spaghetti & Italian Meatballs

Meatball mixture

Tonights menu is
Spaghetti & homemade Italian meatballs


1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound sausage
1 cup of Italian bread crumbs
tbs parsley
tbs Italian seasoning
1 egg
tbs garlic pepper
2 spoon fulls minced onions (if you put fresh onions the meatballs don't hold there form as well)
2 garlic cloves
squeezed fresh lemon halve (optional)
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

Be prepared to get dirty. Combine all ingredients together and mix it all together with your hands. Form meatballs with your hands. But each meatball on a cooling rack that is on a cookie sheet (I do this to let all the fat drain off the meatballs). Cook at 350 for about 45 minutes.

Spaghetti Sauce-

1 jar spaghetti sauce (Walmart brand is my favorite)
1/2 cup onions
2 garlic cloves

Chop up the garlic and onions. Put in a pot with spaghetti sauce. Turn on medium low heat and let it simmer for a couple hours. Stir occasionally. You DON'T want your sauce to burn. It is 4:30 right now and we are eating at 7, so this is how long I am letting my sauce simmer.
