Recipes from Today’s Show: Spaghetti and Meatballs

Published by


TODAY on MHTV: For a classic dinner that the whole family will love, you can’t beat spaghetti and meatballs. In my family, meatball-making techniques vary but my moist and delicious meatballs in an easy tomato sauce with spaghetti is a hearty and satisfying dish. Serve up a light salad and easy no-cook dessert, and dinner is done. More from the show.

    When I tuned in, I couldn’t believe the simplicity of the recipes. Spaghetti and meatballs?????? a salad??? I think we can handle more detailed recipes.

    I laughed when I saw a salad being made. My 5 year old could put this together.

    I made these meatballs tonight and loved it!They were so moist and flavorful.
    After cooking for the family for 33 years I’ve become bored. Your show has helped put the fun back into cooking.

    Hi. I made the pasta sauce for the first time this week. It tastes delicious, but it is thinner than it should be. I added a can of tomato sauce and a can of tomato paste, but it is still thin. I used the basic recipe on your site, but tripled the ingredients because I had garden tomatoes to use up. Could it be the garden tomatoes? Please help!
    Thanks, Vicki Kegg

    I LOVE the simplicity of the recipes! That’s one of the reasons I watch. I like to serve delicious food but don’t have the time or expertise for complicated recipes. Thank you Lucinda!
