Charlie's Favourite


  • 1 lb. spaghetti
  • Cheatballs
  • 1/4 c. finely chopped parsley
  • Freshly grated Parmesan
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 c. onion, finely chopped
  • 1 (28-oz.) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Freshly ground black pepper


In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Drain.

In a large pot over medium heat, heat oil. Add Cheatballs and cook, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer Cheatballs to a plate.

Add onion to pot and cook until soft, 5 minutes. Add crushed tomatoes and bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer.

Return Cheatballs to pot and cover. Simmer until sauce has thickened, 8 to 10 minutes.

Serve pasta with a healthy scoop of Cheatballs and sauce. Top with Parmesan before serving. (Optional)
