Can I Make a "Spaghetti-Stuffed Meatball "?


Why eat spaghetti & meatballs when you can eat a spaghetti-stuffed meatball. Haha. :) I saw this Twisted YouTube video and I had to try this spaghetti-stuffed meatball.


For some reason, I really like stuffed foods. I like the little surprise on the inside. :) It makes it fun to cook and fun to eat.

The basic steps are: You make a meatball mixture and cook some spaghetti and toss it in marinara sauce. Instead of making lots of little meatballs, you shape your meatball mixture into a giant meatball and stuff the cooked spaghetti and bake it all together.


I didn't follow their recipe exactly. I just wanted to make a giant meatball and stuff it with spaghetti. :Haha. :) I made a basic meatball mixture and cooked some angel hair actually with marinara sauce.


What I used:

- Ground beef (~8 oz.)

- 1 egg

- Italian bread crumbs

- Angel Hair

- Marinara

- Fresh mozzarella (for extra-cheesiness)








I actually just cooked some angel hair and then poured some marinara on there and microwaved it for 30-60 seconds, just to make sure the sauce was warm before I put it in the meatball.











I used this steel mixing bowl I have to mold and bake the giant meatball. In the Twisted video, they use a bowl to mold the meatball and then take it out and bake it on baking sheet. I found when I tried a Tasty recipe to make a stuffed meatloaf (see link) that I could bake it in the steel bowl directly and it helps it keep the shape if you do most of the baking in the bowl.

It's really easy and faster than making lots of little meatballs. First, I put some meatball mixture (but not all -- save some to top it off) on the bottom of the bowl (which will become the top of the meatball because you flip it). Then I put the spaghetti / marinara layer. On top of that I put some fresh mozzarella for extra cheesiness. Finally, I put a layer of meatballs to close it off.




Then I baked it at 350 degrees for 30-40 min. I drained the fat out. Then, I flipped it onto a baking tray w/ foil on it and baked it for another 10-15 min. I took it out again and I covered it with fresh mozzarella and broiled it for ~7 minutes, so it would get nice and melt-y on top. So there was melt-y mozzarella on top and on the inside!






RESULT: Success! :)


We are good at this! How good does that look?


Yum! Spaghetti & meatballs in a fun way! You can see the little cheese pull in the photo below. Haha. :)


Doing it this way, you probably eat a little less spaghetti than you normally would, so in a way it's lower carb than traditional spaghetti & meatballs.


This size giant meatball lasted me 4 or 5 meals or could feed a few people.


Like I said, it's easier than making traditional meatballs because you don't need to form lots of little meatballs. Give it a try! We are good at this!
