1/2 lb lean ground beef
1/2 lb ground pork
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
12 oz spaghetti pasta
1 x (15 oz) can crushed tomatoes
1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1 large egg
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup water


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for the spaghetti.
In a bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, panko bread crumbs, egg, half the chopped basil, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and oregano. Mix well.
Form the mixture into 1-inch meatballs.
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add meatballs and cook until browned on all sides, about 8 minutes. Remove meatballs and set aside.
In the same pan, add another 1 tbsp olive oil, diced onion, and minced garlic. Cook until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
Stir in crushed tomatoes, remaining salt, remaining black pepper, red pepper flakes, and water. Bring to a simmer.
Return meatballs to the sauce, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
While the sauce simmers, cook the spaghetti in the boiling water until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain.
Serve the spaghetti with meatballs and sauce on top. Garnish with remaining basil and extra Parmesan cheese.
