Homemade Spaghetti & Meatballs Recipe #CerealChef

Meatballs

When Kellogg’s put me to the Cereal Chef Challenge. I had to make something different I mean, it’s a challenge, right?! So, I decided to also make meatballs made with Kellogg’s All-Bran Cereal. These meatballs are delish and pack a mighty punch of fiber from the cereal. This is a great way to sneak in fiber and healthful ingredients for everyone in your family! Spaghetti & Meatballs Recipe Ingredients

Add olive oil to pan and cook meatballs over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until browned. Drain if necessary.

(Spaghetti Sauce) Saute onions and garlic in a large, heavy-bottomed pan (Dutch oven) until translucent. Add tomatoes, parsley, and all spices to the pan. Bring to a boil, add meatballs to the pan. Turn down heat to low and allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes.

While meatballs and sauce are simmering, cook and drain pasta as directed on package. Serve meatballs over pasta. Top freshly grated Parmesan cheese and enjoy!
