Ingredients

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F. 

Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Rinse with cool water and drain. 

In a bowl, combine the egg, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup marinara sauce and spaghetti. 

Grease a nonstick muffin pan. Use tongs to fill muffin cups with the spaghetti mixture. Make an indentation in the center of each cup, creating a nest. 

Bake for 13-15 minutes or until set. 

While spaghetti nests are baking, in a saucepan, heat meatballs and 1-1/2 cups marinara sauce over medium heat until meatballs are heated through. 

Carefully remove the baked spaghetti nests from the muffin pan and place on a serving platter. Spoon 1 tablespoon of marinara sauce in the middle of each nest and top with a meatball. Top with an additional tablespoon of sauce, basil and Parmesan cheese.
