Got this off recipezaar.com a few years ago and really like it. Have a plate waiting on me when I go home.

Sauce
2 medium onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (28 ounce) can tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 pinch basil
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
2 tablespoons salad oil


Meatballs
1 lb ground beef
2 medium onions, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup fine breadcrumb
1 egg
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions:

1 Combine meatball ingredients, making sure not to overwork.
2 Form into large balls, about 3 inches diameter (small is not as good).
3 For sauce, cook onion and garlic in oil for 5 minutes.
4 Add tomatoes and simmer, uncovered for 20 minutes.
5 Add 1 cup water, parsley, tomato paste and spices, and bring to a boil.
6 Add meatballs, cover, and simmer for 2 hours.
7 Serve over hot spaghetti.
