Making Spaghetti and Pork Meatballs 101 for Non-Cookers


I know a few people who can’t cook to save their lives.

Here is simple recipe that can be whipped up by those who are not exactly fans of the kitchen.

Making the Meatballs

  1. Mix the ground pork, onion, garlic, eggs and flour in a large mixing bowl
  2. Add salt, pepper and soya sauce.
  3. Form little balls (depends on how large you want them) and set these balls aside
  4. Deep fry the meatballs until they are golden brown.
  5. Drain in a container with paper towels to remove excess oil
  6. Set aside

Cooking the Spaghetti, Heating the Sauce

Well… cook the spaghetti according to the package instructions.

You can do this concurrently: Heat the spaghetti sauce in a pan. Add in the meatballs and cook in low heat for 10-15 minutes. If the spaghetti sauce isn’t flavored enough, you can add pepper or salt.


  • Place the spaghetti in a container large enough to hold it in.
  • Top it with the spaghetti sauce and meatballs.
  • Sprinkle with parmesan cheese or any cheese you have.

I sometimes like seaweed on my spaghetti (which grosses out most people). If you want, you can sprinkle shredded seaweed all over your spaghetti too!
