Lady and the Tramp Spaghetti and Meatballs

1 pound ground sirloin

1/4 cup minced fresh onion

2 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs

1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 large egg white, lightly beaten

1 (25.5-ounce) jar fat-free tomato-and-basil pasta sauce, divided

Cooking spray

5 cups hot cooked spaghetti (about 8 ounces uncooked pasta)

5 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

5 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Combine the first 6 ingredients and 2 tablespoons of pasta sauce in a

medium bowl. Shape the meat mixture into 25 (1-inch) meatballs. Place

a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat

until hot. Add the meatballs, and cook 6 minutes, browning on all

sides. Stir in remaining pasta sauce. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer

10 minutes or until the meatballs are done, stirring occasionally.

Serve the meatballs over spaghetti, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese

and fresh basil.

pasta, 1 tablespoon cheese, and tablespoon basil)
