Summertime Spaghetti with Grilled Meatballs

Summertime Spaghetti with Grilled Meatballs
After Hurricane Sandy, we were without power for two weeks. I learned what you can make on a grill, such as these smoky meatballs and tomato sauce.
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Main dish
  • 12 ounces uncooked spaghetti
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • ¼ cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon 2% milk
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 pounds (4 to 5) large tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese
  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, combine onion, bread crumbs, egg, Parmesan, milk and seasonings. Add beef; mix lightly. With wet hands, shape into 1-1/2-in. balls. Place meatballs on greased grill rack; grill, covered, over medium heat until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  3. For sauce, combine tomatoes, garlic, oil, sugar, salt, oregano and pepper in an 11x7x2-in. disposable foil pan. Grill over medium heat until sauce begins to simmer, about 10 minutes. Stir in basil.
  4. Serve meatballs and sauce with spaghetti; top with shredded Parmesan.
