For the Tomato Sauce


For the Meatballs


  • 2 pounds organic ground beef
  • 2/3 cups Whole Wheat Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil, torn in big pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 12-16 oz uncooked spaghetti pasta


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a baking sheet with lip, place down parchment paper. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, add the beef, bread crumbs, onion, basil, garlic, salt, pepper, eggs, and mix well with hands. (Spray hands with cooking spray for non-sticking). Roll the meat into balls (about 18-24) and place on the baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes (depending on the size).

  • Step 3

    To prepare sauce, heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add oil; heat for 1 minute and add chopped onion, 5 garlic cloves, and dried basil to pan; cook 4-5 minutes, stirring. Add tomato paste; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in wine; cook 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, sugar, salt, pepper, and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 4

    Add meatballs to the sauce or serve on the side. If serving on the side, drizzle with Worcestershire sauce.

  • Step 5

    Follow freezing instructions, or continue recipe.

  • Step 6

    Cook pasta according to package directions, drain. Top pasta with meatball mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

  • Step 7

    For a large board, serve the spaghetti sauce in the center of the board. Deconstruct a Casear Salad, baguette bread, and the pasta, arranging it on the board.

  • Step 8

    Add fresh Parmesan cheese and butter. Serve!
