  • Recipe Serves6
  • Preparation Time20 min
  • Cooking Time20 min


  • 1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 1 tub Knorr® Homestyle Stock - Beef
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. finely chopped garlic
  • 1 jar tomato & basil flavored pasta sauce
  • 12 ounces spaghetti, cooked and drained


  • Combine ground beef, Knorr® Homestyle Stock, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, egg and garlic in medium bowl; shape into 12 meatballs.
  • Bring Sauce to a boil over medium-high heat in large saucepan. Gently stir in uncooked meatballs.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until meatballs start to become firm, about 5 minutes. Turn meatballs gently, then simmer until done, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Serve over hot spaghetti and sprinkle, if desired, with additional Parmesan cheese.
  • Look for the names Sirloin, Chuck and Round on packages of extra lean ground beef. These names indicate the ground beef is made from a single cut, not a mix
