  • 16 oz. package of Sams Mills GF spaghetti cook according to package
  • 2 1/2 cups gluten free Marinara sauce homemade or store bought
  • For Meatballs:
  • 1 small onion minced
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons of ketchup
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup Shar’s bread crumbs
  • 1 pound ground beef


  • Prepare Meatballs
  • Whisk the first 7 ingredients in a large bowl to blend. Stir in the cheese and GF breadcrumbs. Mix in the beef. Shape into meatballs.
  • Either fry meatballs in oil and brown them well on all sides over medium-low heat, turning carefully about 10 minutes or broil, as I do, for 5 minutes on each side.
  • Then transfer the meatballs to sauce, cover, and simmer on the lowest heat for 25 to 30 minutes, until the meatballs are cooked through.
  • Serve hot over cooked GF spaghetti and pass the grated Parmesan.
