Simple Meal Monday: Spagetti and Meatballs

SweetnsimpleblogThe start of a new week!!

We had a super fun weekend, a definite highlight was carving pumpkins with friends 🙂 So fun!

But now its back to the regular rhythm of the week… which means coming up with meals.

Do you ever have those times where you haven’t gone grocery shopping for a while and you need to make something for dinner… so you have to scrounge around to see what you can find? That was me last night.

I ended up finding some ground beef, tomato sauce, and pasta.  Everything I need for spaghetti and meatballs!!!

A major ‘go-to’ meal for us is pasta, its easy and always good.

In case you are looking for an easy meal for your Monday, here is my meatball recipe 🙂

This is what you need:

  • a package of ground beef
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 4 tbsp of oats (I like to use oats instead of bread crumbs)
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp BBQ sause
  • 1/2 an onion (finely chopped)
  • 5 tsp of spices (I used a mix of Italian spice, garlic and red pepper, steak spice)


Mix all of your ingredients together, and roll into balls.

Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes or until they are cooked through.

Once your meatballs are all baked, add them into your noodles and tomato sauce. And you’ve got a yummy dinner!!

Happy cooking!
