Spaghetti and Meatballs

This might seem like nothing special, but there's a reason it's so popular. I gave some to my 8 month old baby and she LOVED it!

500g/1lb lean ground veal
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
handful chopped fresh parsley
pinch ground nutmeg
1 egg
1 clove garlic, minced
salt & pepper
1 jar of your favourite marinara sauce
spaghetti cooked al dente

In a medium bowl combine ground veal, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, nutmeg, egg garlic and salt and pepper. Mix lightly with a fork but do not mash or meatballs will be tough. Roll meatballs into to whatever size you like...I make medium sized ones.
Place meatballs in skillet on medium heat and allow to brown on all sides. Pour marinara sauce in pan, bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and cook until sauce is hot and meatballs are cooked through. Serve on top of spaghetti and cover with cheese!
