Total Time: 0:30

Cook: 0:15

Level: Easy

Serves: 12 Servings


  • 12 oz. spaghetti

  • 3 large eggs, divided

  • 1 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella

  • 3/4 c. grated Parmesan, divided, plus more for garnish

  • 3 c. marinara, divided

  • Cooking spray, for pan

  • 1 lb. ground beef

  • 1/2 c. bread crumbs

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley, plus more for garnish

  • kosher salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cook spaghetti until very al dente, 8 minutes (noodles will continue to cook in oven). Drain and rinse under cold water.

  2. In a large bowl, toss cooled spaghetti with 2 beaten eggs, shredded mozzarella, 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, and 1 cup marinara.

  3. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and nest spaghetti inside. Using the bottom of a shot glass, firmly press down to create a well.

  4. Bake until set, 15 minutes. Let cool. (If nests puffed up while baking, press down again with shot glass.)

  5. While spaghetti cups bake, make meatballs: In a large bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, garlic, remaining egg, remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Roll into balls.

  6. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Brown meatballs, 4 minutes per side, then drain fat. Pour over remaining 2 cups marinara and let simmer, 5 minutes.

  7. Spoon meatball onto spaghetti nest. Garnish with Parm and parsley.
