Spaghetti Meatball

One of Mishu favourite meal is meatball spaghetti.She only like red pasta sauce .I understand kids preferred red sauce then white sauce.Well,I guess all American kids like this classic favourite meatball spaghetti,right?I believed it's a popular American favourite comfort food invented by American not from Italy. These days we can get ready make meatball spaghetti from frozen section in the supermarket to make life easier. But for me I usually make the meatball and sauce myself.I prefer to add more meat and flavor into the dish.Cooking this dish at home is more cost effective than buying the ready make at frozen section coz the portioning in the package is really small .Too bad I don't have big family who can finish the dish at one meal,only Mishu and hubby loves this dish.So to save time and cost, I will cook the sauce in big quantity and freeze it in freezer for later usage.


1 box or pack spaghetti,cook accordingly to the instruction on the box
2 bottle of marinara or meat flavor sauce(any brand)
salt to taste
8 cloves fresh garlic,peeled and chopped
3 tbsp olive oil
2 cube beef bullion
3-4 tbsp butter
2 tbsp ground black pepper
I large onion,peeled and diced small


5 lbs minced beef,80-90 % lean
2 tbsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp beef bouillon powder
1 tbsp seasalt
2 tbsp dried oregano
3-4 tbsp corn flour
2 eggs

3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

1:Boil water in large stock pot to cook spaghetti.When water rolling boil add in pasta and cook accordingly to the instruction on the package.Drained cooked pasta before add in butter and set aside.
2:Mix minced beef with all the seasoning,eggs and corn flour in a large bowl,mix well and shape into small ball.Prepare a large pot with water at high heat.When water rolling boil,add in all the shape meatball into the pot.Cook all the ball for 5 minutes or until floated.Remove and drained cooked meatball from pot and set aside.
3:Meanwhile prepare large stock pot at medium heat,add in olive oil and chopped garlic.Saute garlic until lightly brown ,add onion and marinara sauce.
