Post by JENNY on 2018-09-27, 01:14

Each week I will try and post home cooked recipes I have made at home for my family.
Some photo's will be of our food after it's cooked and some will just come from the book / internet.

Spaghetti and meatballs


Today 26.09.2018
Dinner -
Preparation time : less than 30 mins
Cooking time : 30 mins to 1 hour
Serves : Serves 4

Ingredients

For the sauce


1 tbsp olive oil
1 brown onion, diced
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
400g tin tomatoes
500ml/18fl oz vegetable or beef stock (from a cube)
400g/14oz dried spaghetti
salt and pepper

For the meatballs


400g/14oz beef mince
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
½ tsp dried mixed herbs
1 tbsp olive oil

Method



  1. Heat a large saucepan over a medium heat and add the olive oil. Once hot, add the onion and cook gently without browning for 4–5 minutes, or until softened and translucent. Add the garlic, continue to cook for 2 minutes until aromatic, then add the dried herbs, tomatoes and stock. Bring the sauce to a simmer, reduce the heat and simmer gently while you make the meatballs.
  2. For the meatballs, mix together the beef, garlic and herbs along with a decent pinch of salt and pepper. Using wet hands roll into 20 balls.
  3. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add the olive oil. Once hot, fry the meatballs on all sides until nicely coloured, being careful not to burn them. You may need to do this in batches. Transfer to the saucepan containing the sauce.
  4. Continue to simmer the sauce for 10 minutes while you cook the spaghetti.
  5. Bring a large saucepan water to the boil, add a pinch of salt and cook the spaghetti according to the packet instructions. Once cooked, drain and tip into the saucepan with the meatball sauce. Mix well and serve hot.


The only thing I did that was not done here is i added cheese in the middle of the meat balls
What this dose is when you cut the meat balls in half the cheese oozes out Yum
