  • 1 package spaghetti noodles - cooked I used "thick" spaghetti noodles
  • 2 eggs uncooked and scrambled in a bowl
  • 5 Tbs melted butter
  • 1 cup of your favorite shredded cheese blend divided (I used an Italian blend)
  • 1 15 oz container ricotta cheese usually found close to the sour cream
  • 1 24 oz jar of Prego Italian Sauce
  • 1 small package of frozen meatballs
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Cook spaghetti noodles according to package instructions, drain
  • In a saucepan, combine meatballs and Prego and heat
  • Spray 2 muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray
  • In a small bowl, beat eggs and add in 1/2 cup of your favorite shredded cheese + melted butter
  • Pour egg.cheese mixture over freshly cooked noodles and stir to coat
  • Using a fork, scoop a few noodles into each muffin tin compartment and "twirl" to create a nest
  • In a separate bowl, combine ricotta cheese and 1/2 cup of your favorite shredded cheese and mix well
  • Spoon about a tablespoon worth of cheese mixture into the center of each spaghetti nest
  • Place one meatball on top of ricotta cheese and sprinkle with a little mozzarella cheese
  • Bake for 25 minutes
  • Serve with additional sauce if you'd like
  • Enjoy!
