  • 1 cup Classico jarred pesto sauce

  2. Spray drained pasta with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 175 F.
  4. Place meatballs on lightly oiled, rimmed baking sheet.
  5. Working with 3 strands, twirl pasta around a skewer. Stick each completed skewer into a meatball. Repeat until all meatballs are skewered.
  6. Spray completed spaghetti-and-meatball skewers with nonstick olive oil spray.
