  1. Made this tonight.  During the process, I thought, “Too many meatballs!  Too much sauce!  Not enough pasta!”  But I was totally wrong.  Exactly the right amount of everything.  This was SO good and SO easy.  Thanks for a terrific recipe!  

  2. I too am all about making ahead and freezing.  Your meatball recipe will be very versatile will other recipes.   I have a cookie scoop which should simply the making of the meatballs.   

    1. Hi Jay, here is my favorite meatball recipe. You can use ground beef or ground turkey, and it conveniently makes 40 meatballs 🙂 https://www.shugarysweets.com/meatball-parmesan-casserole

  3. This was very good. Will absolutely make this again. I will lower the Oregano to 1 tsp. Other then that the flavor was perfect. This made with the meatball recipe posted above made for a very happy family tonight. Thank you for sharing. 

  4. I need to make this! When I was a kid, spaghettios were my favorite. I haven’t eaten them in so long!

  5. Hubby loves spaghettios!  He used to make them and put cut up hot dogs in the bowl.

  6. I adore homemade meatballs! This looks so good, honestly, its making me so hungry even though I just ate lunch. Delish!

  7. I used to eat spaghettios all the time too. I never liked it, but it was a simple and quick dinner for my busy working mom. I love that you made your own and then used your slow cooker. Man I need to use my slow cooker more. I am so making this for the kiddos asap. Love those big meatballs and the fact they are turkey makes me one happy mama. Pinned!!

  8. This is PURE comfort food! Definitely for adults and kids — my girl would love this!

  9. This looks AWESOME. I totally loved Chef Boyardee as a kid and hey, even still as an adult 🙂 But homemade is always better and this looks AMAZING! Love that you used turkey meatballs, too. I’m now craving this!

  10. Oh my gosh what a good idea! I know my daughter would love spaghettios but I have never given them to her because I don’t want her to have that much salt. This is perfect! What a fun recipe!

  11. This brings me back to middle school… I used to eat Spaghettios and meatballs for my school lunches. All my friends got jealous because I was the one with the “cool” lunch. I love that you recreated this!

  12. I hardly eat food out of cans any more because of preservatives but spaghettios where one of my childhood favs! This looks like a great copycat!

    Pinned. Have a great Wednesday!

  13. This is an awesome meal idea!!! My kids are going to go crazy for it…and I love how easy it is to make!!! We used to buy those canned spaghettios all the time too, and I never was crazy about the taste!

  14. Meatballs are a comfort food for me too! I always make extra to freeze so I can pull out as needed. Great recipe Aimee, as always!

  15. I never really liked Spaghettios from a can, but these homemade ones look absolutely incredible!! Especially with the addition of meatballs. Grownup comfort food 🙂

  16. Making this at the end of the week is SUCH a great idea! I never have anything for the hubs to take to work during the weekend…and that is my NO COOK time! Plus, you can never go wrong with a childhood classic. Pinned!
