Coat a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and lay the meatballs on the sheet, spacing them evenly apart. Spray the tops of the meatballs lightly with cooking spray. Bake at 350�F (177�C) for 30 minutes or until the meatballs are no longer pink inside. Set aside. keep warm. Set aside.


While the meatballs are baking, cook the spaghetti al dente according to package directions. Drain the pasta, return it to the pot, toss in the olive oil if desired, and cover to keep warm. Set aside.
