Mama’s Best Ever Spaghetti & Meatballs with Melted Cheese

  • Total Time: 40 mins
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 1 1/2 lbs. of lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup of Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 jar (24 oz.) of Ragu® Sauce
  • 12 ounces of spaghetti, cooked and drained
  • 18 small cheese squares


  1. Combine ground beef, bread crumbs, eggs and 1/2 cup Sauce in medium bowl; shape into 18 meatballs.
  2. Press the thumb on each meatball to create an inner space, then fill each meatball with a cheese square, and close the meatball by wrapping the cheese with meat. The cheese should melt when cooked.
  3. Bring remaining Sauce to a boil over medium-high heat in 12-inch skillet. Gently stir in uncooked meatballs. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes or until meatballs are done.
  4. Serve over hot spaghetti.
