Easy Creamy Spaghetti and Meatballs

with all the christmas goodies and meals ahead, i know the last thing you want to think about it spaghetti.

but with so much going on, spaghetti is my go to quick meal. except, my husband doesnt really like spaghetti. but ya see, i LOVE spaghetti. i even eat leftovers for breakfast sometimes. and one time the hubby was on a work trip for a week and a made a big batch of spaghetti and ate on it all week. like, its serious.

but sometimes even plane ole spaghetti gets boring, so ya gotta jazz it up. oh did i also mention i love vodka spaghetti sauce. mmmm. so i tried to replicate the creaminess in this recipe to give regular spaghetti a different flavor.

Easy Creamy Spaghetti and Meatballs

1 lb ground meat (i like to use ground pork)
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 egg
1 tbsp italian seasoning
olive oil
15 oz jar of spaghetti sauce (ive been using ragu roasted garlic)
cream cheese
spaghetti noodles


1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil for noodles.

2. Mix ground meat, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, egg, and italian seasoning together. Form into small meatballs (i used my little cookie scoop) and coat with flour.

3. Put a small bit of olive oil in pan and place meatballs in over medium heat until cooked.

4. Your water should be boiling now, so add your noodles. Drain when done.

5. Once meatballs are done, add your jar of sauce, and a couple of spoonfuls of cream cheese (i did about 3) Stir it all together and let cream cheese melt.

6. Once cream cheese has melted, its ready to serve!

7. Enjoy!
