Spaghetti & Meatballs for Dummies ***

This was a recipe I came up with last summer.  I spent hours pouring over the different recipes on the 'Net, but I couldn't find one that worked for us.  I ended up combining aspects of all of them, and the result was a keeper for us.  This is beyond simple.  Dh made it tonight, and even he couldn't mess it up. :)  It was just as good as usual.  It really is like those "Dummies" books, because it's just about impossible to mess it up.  I normally just add browned ground turkey to my spaghetti, so this is not all that different.  The kids just get a lot more excited when there are meatballs in it.  Overall, it's 8 thumbs up for us.  :)

1-1/2 lbs ground turkey
3/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg
2 jars Ragu Mama's Special Garden Pasta Sauce
1 box (13 oz) whole wheat thin spaghetti

Combine ground beef, bread crumbs, and egg; shape into 32 meatballs. You can freeze half if you don't like too many meatballs in the sauce.
Bring sauce to a boil in saucepan. Stir in uncooked meatballs.
Simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, 25 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.
