Spaghetti and meatballs is one of those easy weeknight meals that many of us make over and over. Here's a way to take it to a whole new level by adding a secret ingredient to our meatballs. Guess what it is!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3/4 cup crushed potato chips
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup coarsley chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 (28-ounce) jars spaghetti sauce
  • 1 pound spaghetti
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, potato chips, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, the water, parsley, egg, garlic powder, and black pepper; mix well then form into 12 meatballs.
     
  2. Place meatballs in a large pot and cook over medium-high heat until brown on all sides, turning occasionally; drain.
     
  3. Add spaghetti sauce, cover, and reduce heat to medium-low. Continue cooking meatballs in sauce for about 20 minutes, or until no pink remains.
     
  4. Meanwhile, prepare spaghetti according to package directions.
     
  5. Serve cooked spaghetti with meatballs and sauce, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
