It seems that Wubbzy has worked up a bit of an appetite! It’s time for Wubbzy to take a trip to the kitchen to cook up something tasty! Wubbzy’s fun and interactive app adventure with the Wuzzleburg firefighters brought Wubbzy to the Spaghetti and Meatball Factory. Wubbzy found himself surrounded by oodles of noodles and masses of meatballs. What a kooky situation for Wubbzy to be caught up in! All this messing with food has certainly made Wubbzy hungry!

Wubbzy always has fun in the kitchen cooking up yum-yummy meals and treats to share with his friends! Sometimes Wubbzy likes to the make tacos, a hotdog, a sandwich, or even a cake. There are so many delicious options to choose from! Today, Wubbzy has a craving for Italian food! There are lots and lots of scrumptious dishes that Wubbzy could choose from – pizza, ravioli, chicken parmesan, tortellini, or maybe even cannolis! It’s a tough decision with so many options to choose from, but Wubbzy has made up his mind. It’s time for Wubbzy to make some Spaghetti and Meatballs! Are you hungry yet? Wubbzy threw on his apron and hit the kitchen to assemble the perfect combination of noodles, tomato sauce, basil, oregano, garlic, and, of course, meatballs! Here is delicious recipe to make with the help of a grown up:


Wubbzy’s Super Easy Spaghetti and Meatballs


1-2 lbs. spaghetti noodles (or noodle of choice)


1lb. ground beef

1 egg

1/4 cup breadcrumbs

1 small onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

salt and pepper, to taste


28oz. cans of crushed tomatoes

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 small onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1 teaspoon oregano

2 teaspoons sugar

2 bay leaves

salt and pepper, to taste



1. Preheat oven to 350° F.

2. In a saute pan, heat the oil, onions, garlic, salt, and pepper until onions are clear.     Remove from heat and let cool.

3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine onion mixture, ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, and parsley. With hands, form mixture into medium balls and line on a baking tray.

4. Bake in the oven for 15 – 20 min. Meatballs will be done when they are slightly browned and are cooked all the way through. Be sure to turn meatballs half-way through to ensure even cooking.


1. While the meatballs cook, bring oil in a saucepan to medium heat.

2. Add onion, garlic, salt and pepper, and cook until onions are clear.

3. Add crushed tomatoes (in juices), oregano, sugar, and bay leaves. Bring this mixture to a boil.

4. Reduce sauce to low heat. Add meatballs to the sauce when they are fully cooked. Simmer the meatballs in sauce for about 45mins, or until sauce thickens to desired consistency.


1. While sauce simmers, bring a pot of water to a boil (use enough water to cover your desired amount of noodles.)

2. Once the water boils, add in pasta. Stirring occasionally, cook until noodles reach desired consistency (al dente or soft.)

3. Strain noodles. Serve with desired amount of meatballs and sauce.

4. Enjoy!

Yields: 4 – 6 servings
