Party Food Idea: Spaghetti & Meatball Cupcakes

By  | Last Updated:  

I love a good birthday party: the decor, the menu, the celebration of a new year. Except when it’s my birthday. And I’m turning 39.

This was my reality last week. My birthday kind of snuck up on me. Our family has been so busy with work and school, that it didn’t seem possible that it could be birthday time already. Yet here it was! 

Cute Party Food: Spaghetti & Meatball Cupcakes #Saucesome

As we prepared to host friends for a low-key celebration at home, I started thinking about what food to serve. I love fun, themed food and these spaghetti cupcakes seemed like the perfect idea. Not only are they excellent for a party, they’re a great idea to make a regular dinner more fun.

My goal with any meal is to make it both wholesome and fun. I like recipes that have hidden veggies, are visually appealing and pack in great flavor. These spaghetti cupcakes definitely fit the bill! Whether we’re eating alone as a family or entertaining guests, I love to encourage conversation during the meal. What are you loving about life right now? What are you working towards? What was the best part of your day? What are you curently reading? It’s amazing how a few, simple questions can open up discussions. We’ve made many great memories with family and friends gathered around our dining table for a meal. 


Ragú® is all about making mealtimes more Saucesome for families. From unique recipes to silly moments to crazy weeknights, it’s all saucesome with help from Ragú® sauce.
