Description

Spaghetti with Meatballs and Tomato Sauce. Ever since I was a boy, spaghetti and meatballs has been one of my favourite dinners. It’s based on a classic Italian pomodoro (tomato sauce), which you can see me make on this site. It’s advisable to make the meatballs a few hours in advance to give time for the garlic to infuse and for the meatballs to set.

    Directions

    1. Soak a slice of bread in milk. Squeeze the milk out of the bread, and add the bread to the beef mince with two cloves of crushed garlic and an egg. Season with Knorr Aromat. (For even lighter meatballs, try using half chicken and half beef as they do in Italy). Mix everything together using your hands.
    2. Roll the mixture into small balls (approximately 24 from 500g of minced beef), then lightly dust each one with flour.
    3. Heat some olive oil in a frying pan. Add the meatballs, browning them lightly and turning them as you go.
