  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Spaghetti:
  • 1 jar (26 to 30 ounces) spaghetti sauce
  • 8 ounces uncooked spaghetti, cooked
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Cooking:

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Combine meatball ingredients in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 12 2-inch meatballs. Place on  aluminum foil-lined rack on broiler pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake in 400°F oven 24 to 27 minutes.
