This "recipe" for No Time To Cook Spaghetti and Meatballs is really not much of a recipe. As much as I like to cook, sometimes I just don't have the time. I always keep a bag of purchased pre-made meatballs in the freezer so I can whip this up anytime. I make it often to feed hungry kids after sports practice. I also make it a lot when my husband and I are going out to dinner but I want to feed the kids something other than take out pizza. I hate to admit this, but a few of my kids actually prefer this to my homemade recipe for Spaghetti and Meatballs!
Total preparation and cooking time: about 15-20 minutes
1 pound spaghetti noodles
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 pound frozen cooked meatballs (about 25 1" meatballs)or as many as desired
1/2 medium onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (26 ounce) jar of spaghetti sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Cook the spaghetti noodles as directed. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet or stock-pot. Add the frozen meatballs and cook over medium heat until browned on all sides (Either use a spoon to turn or just shake the pan to rotate the meatballs). Add the onion and the garlic to the meatballs and continue to cook 1-2 minutes until the onions and garlic are softened but not browned. Add the spaghetti sauce and oregano and simmer until meatballs are heated through (about 5 minutes if you've browned them well). Serve over drained pasta.
