Homemade Spaghetti sauce with meatballs

Well we finally ran out healthy food to eat and dont have money right now to go to the store so we are eating what we have in the house. Which since we just barely switched over to eating healthy we have remnants of unhealthy food still in the pantry. So i decided to make our ever loving spaghetti sauce that we all love.
1 onion, diced
3 cans spaghetti sauce
2 cans diced spaghetti(we usually use my grandmas canned tomatoes but we ran out and don't live close by her so we have to deal with store bought now)
2-3 tablespoons garlic salt
2-3 tablespoons oregano
1 teaspoon basil leaves
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Throw the onion in a pot and saute it for about 5 minutes and then add everything else and let it come to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer it. Stir it every now and then.
Since we just used what was in the house, we had a bag of meatballs int eh freezer that needed to be eaten so i threw those in with the sauce and let them cook fro about 20 min(as recommended on the package).
Boiled up some noodles and threw it all together.
Well i had my brother over fro diner since he is home alone and doesn't have mommy to cook fro him. Since the rest of my family went to Mexico this week for spring break. But the bag of meatballs didn't have to many in it and well my 19 yr old brother ate all the meatballs out of the sauce.
Well we had tons of sauce left over and i just put it in the fridge for the next night. And i cut up some chicken and threw it int he sauce and warmed it up on the stove top and made some penne noodles and we had chicken in it the next night.
Sorry no picture for that one, i totally spaced it. We have some leftover from that ill take some pics today at lunch and post it. LOL
