"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

1 1/4 lb. ground sirloin
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce (eyeball it)
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c. Italian bread crumbs (a couple of handfuls)

1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Salt and pepper

1 lb. Spaghetti
1 jar of your favorite prepared pasta sauce

Bring a large pot of water to boil. Toss in spaghetti and cook until al dente.

Mix meatball ingredients in a large bowl (I find that using your hands works best!). Roll into 1 1/2 inch balls and place on a non-stick or greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 425║ 10 -12 minutes or until no longer pink.

Pour jarred pasta sauce into a deep skillet or sautÚ pan. When meatballs are cooked through, place them in the sauce and simmer until sauce is bubbling. Toss spaghetti with desired amount of sauce and place meatballs on top.

Sprinkle more Parmesan cheese on top if desired.

When I first came across this recipe, it included instructions to make your own sauce, but being a college student with not much time on my hands, I opted for jarred spaghetti sauce and it tastes great! You can always use your own sauce recipe!
