  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. In a large bowl combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, eggs, garlic, parsley, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan, and salt and pepper to taste. Shape into 1 1/2-inch meatballs.
  2. Place meatballs on a metal rack coated with nonstick cooking spray. Place rack in a foil-lined baking pan. Bake 20 minutes or until meatballs are browned and an instant-read thermometer registers 155°F.
  3. Place marinara sauce in a large heavy pot over medium heat; bring to boiling. Add meatballs; reduce heat to low; simmer, covered, 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti al dente according to package directions. Drain; set aside. Serve meatballs with spaghetti, and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan.
