Easy Spaghetti and Meatballs

Easy can also be called “Lazy”. It’s how I describe a recipe that involves a little bit of cooking and a lot of help from some ready made items. It’s definitely easier thanks to a wide variety of ready made Vegan Metaball options. I usually make my own from Beyond Burger but sometimes it’s nice to just throw some ready made balls into your sauce. I found some Vegan Meatballs at Aldi and decided to give them a try.

The sauce will serve 4 -6



8oz of Spaghetti, Linguine or Fettucine ( I willsometimes combine them in order to finish up a pacakge)

1 package of Vegan Meatballs ( I used Aldi brand but I also like Gardein when not making my own)

1 can of Organic diced Tomatoes

1 can of Organic Tomato Sauce

4 cloves of Garlic

2 Bay Leaves

1 tsp of Oregano

1 tsp of Onion Powder

pinch of Red Chili Flakes

2 Tbsp of Grapeseed Oil

2 tsp of Aged Balsamic Vinegar

1 Jar of Alla Norma Sauce with Egglplant from Alessi

1 can of Organic Mushrooms

Vegan Parm and Fresh Parsley for topping

Salt & Pepper to taste


1. Sauté the Garlic on low heat until lightly browned

2. Add in the Spices, Bay Leaves and Mushrooms. Continue to cook for a few minutes before adding in the diced Tomatoes

3. Raise the temp to medium - low and add in the Tomato Sauce, Balsamic Vinegar as well as the Jar of Sauce

4. Cover the pot and let simmer for 25 -30 minutes

5. Add in the Meatballs and continue to cook for 10 - 15 minutes while you cook the Pasta

6. Serve with plenty of Vegan Parmesan and fresh Parsley
