Here are 42 of the Best Sides for your Spaghetti dinner! Everyone in my family gobbles this meal up every time, and there are so many side dishes that are perfect for it. I know sometimes you can get into a rut, so keep scrolling to find some inspiration!

I’m not sure there isn’t anything I don’t love about Spaghetti and Meatballs. It is classically Italian, so delicious and the very definition of comfort food. I don’t make it frequently because it’s a little more work compared to a simple meat sauce, but man, when I do is it a fabulous meal! So you’ve got your spaghetti and meatballs planned, but what should serve with it? Here are a few of my favorite sides dishes.
