Spaghetti & Sausage Meatballs is a favorite in my family. It’s simple, comforting and offers just a little boost of spice that you don’t get from regular meatballs.

I generally use sweet Italian sausage, but you could use any kind of sausage you have. Spicy Italian, Chorizo or even plain, unseasoned sausage. It’s going to soak up the sauce flavor, anyway.

And speaking of sauce, you can serve this yummy marinara over spaghetti, as suggested here, or use it in any of your favorite Italian dishes, such as…

You could even slice up the sausage and use it on Homemade Pizza if you like! Or eat with a slice of bread for dipping. Yum!
