Copycat Noodles & Company Spaghetti and Meatballs

I was introduced to Noodles & Company on a vacation.  I always like to try out places that I don’t have near home, to get a different flavor that I might not be able to find.  Noodles & Company was one such place.  They have a wide variety of noodle dishes, from Asian to American, and of course Italian.  One of their stand-out dishes is their Spaghetti and Meatballs.  Tender beef and sausage meatballs simmered in a fresh tomato sauce that is ladled over freshly cooked noodles is a meal fit for a king.  Now you can make Copycat Noodles & Company Spaghetti and Meatballs at home in less than an hour from scratch!

Ingredient Tips for Copycat Noodles & Company Spaghetti and Meatballs

The recipe for Copycat Noodles & Company Spaghetti and Meatballs calls for white wine.  Choose a wine that is dry for best results.  Sweet wines will add an odd sweetness to the resulting sauce as well as fruity flavors that might not be suited to the tomatoes.  Use an Italian sausage that you enjoy, whether it be hot or mild.  If you can only get it in links, simply slice the skin on the links and remove the meat.  I doubled the recipe for meatballs when I made it, as my family loves meatball subs from the leftovers, but the recipe below is written for a single batch.

    I love to go to your postings. I would like to try the meatball and sauce recipe.. I noticed bread crumbs in your picture, but nothing to say how much breadcrumbs to use. Do I make my own judgement in using it…
