Spaghetti with Meatballs, Garlic Toast, Steamed Broccoli and Cauliflower

1 pkg spaghetti
1 bag frozen meatballs
1 can pasta sauce

4 slices bread
garlic powder
Parmesan cheese

1/2 bunch broccoli, cut into florets
2-3 cauliflower crowns, cut into bite-sized pieces

I feel like everyone has their own way of eating spaghetti and meatballs. For me, it's my lazy recipe for a busy day, so I do the least amount of work possible. Feel free to add onion or bell pepper, or do whatever you like to do on your own spaghetti night.

Bake meatballs according to package directions.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti according to package directions.

Fill the bottom of a medium saucepan with water. Place a steamer basket inside and fill with cauliflower and broccoli. Bring to a boil over medium to medium-high heat. Cook until broccoli is bright green, and broccoli and cauliflower are fork tender.

Toast pieces of bread. Spread with butter and sprinkle lightly with garlic powder and Parmesan cheese.

Heat pasta sauce in a microwavable serving bowl.

Serve spaghetti with sauce and meatballs. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese. Serve toast, broccoli and cauliflower on the side.
