Spaghetti and Meatballs in a white dish

There’s always one meal I know that everyone in the family will eat and love. That meal is spaghetti and meatballs. I always end up serving my spaghetti and meatballs. I usually double or triple the recipe and freeze what we don’t eat so I have a quick meal on hand that is a guaranteed winner.

  • Freezer Instructions

    These meatballs can be frozen. Place on a baking sheet after forming into meatballs and place in the freezer to freeze. Once frozen, remove from baking sheet and transfer to a resealable plastic bag for longer term storage. They will stay good in the freezer for 1 to 3 months.

  • Leftovers and Reheating Instructions

    Store in an airtight container or plastic bag in the refrigerator. Will stay good for up to 5 days.
