SPAGHETTI & CHEESE SAUCE

Instructions
TO MAKE MEATBALLS
Pre-heat oven to 400 °F. Line a large (approx. 18”x12”) baking sheet with foil and set aside. Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and mix well with a fork or your hands. Roll into 1 ½ - 2 inch balls and place about 1 inch apart on the baking sheet. You should be able to fit all of them on one sheet. Place in pre-heated oven and bake for about 30 minutes. While meatballs are baking, prepare spaghetti noodles according to package instructions.
TO MAKE CHEESE SAUCE
Melt butter in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and whisk until combined, continue whisking for about 1 minute. Slowly add milk while whisking so that lumps do not form. When mixture becomes smooth, add in the cheese and remaining ingredients, stirring until all cheese is melted and sauce is the desired consistency (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat.
Pour cheese sauce over spaghetti noodles and top with meatballs. Makes 4 servings.
