  1. Heat oven to 375 °F (190°C). In large bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, onion, salt and pepper; mix lightly but thoroughly. In 8-inch square baking dish, press beef mixture into 1/2-inch thickness. Bake at 375 °F (190°C) for approximately 20 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 160°F (70°C). Carefully pour off drippings. Cut beef mixture into 16 squares. Meanwhile cook pasta according to package directions. Approximately 6 minute before pasta is done, stir in vegetables. Drain; keep warm. In large saucepan, combine "meatballs" (squares) and spaghetti sauce. Cook, uncovered, over medium-low heat 6 to 8 minutes or until heated through; stir occasionally. Serve over pasta and vegetables. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
