How to cook
Step 1
  • Reheat ready-to-cook spaghetti with sauce according to package directions.
Step 2
  • Mix it with Italian dried herbs or seasoning, shredded cheese and 2 whisked eggs in a bowl. Fold well, taking extra care not to break the spaghetti into small pieces.
Step 3
  • Shape the spaghetti mixture into 1 1/2″ balls.
Step 4
  • Combine remaining egg with water and whisk to make egg wash.
Step 5
  • Cover spaghetti balls in flour, egg wash and panko bread crumbs. Make sure you have an even coating.
Step 6
  • Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes or so, for a firmer ball.
Step 7
  • Heat oil in a deep pan on medium-high heat. Once it reaches around 330°F, deep fry the balls until golden brown.
Step 8
  • Serve with your favourite marinara sauce.
