Place the cheese cubes inside a small freezer plastic bag that can be resealed, seal up the bag and allow to freeze for about an hour.

Preheat the oven for about 375oF. Then, line your 15x10x1-inch pan using foil; spray cooking oil on the foil. Inside the large bowl, combine 3 tbsp of pasta sauce and breadcrumbs. Stir in the onion, beef, salt, egg, and oregano. Shape the mixture into 2-inch of 18 meatballs. Press your finger into a center of cheese cube making sure you seal them inside. Place gently into the pan. Then, bake for about ten minutes.

At the meantime, you should pour the remaining pasta sauce inside the 5-quart Dutch oven. Cover, and allow simmering on medium-high heat while you continue to stir. Stir in meatballs gently; decrease the heat to about medium-low. Then cover up and allow simmering for about ten minutes, stirring occasionally, till the meatball cooked thoroughly without any pinkish color at the middle.

Cook spaghetti following instruction on the packet and drain; keep warm.

Serve your meatballs and the sauce on top of the spaghetti. Serve your meal using Parmesan cheese.
