Spaghetti & Meatballs For Adults and the Little Ones


    So in these trying times, we may have a little bit more time on our hands!! So lets cook......


    We wanted to do a recipe which both the adults and the little ones can do together.


    We are sure you will both enjoy :)

    Here we go!



    Ingredients


    300g of good quality pork sausages

    500g of beef - minced

    1 small onion - grated

    1 carrot grated finely

    40g of Parmesan (grated) plus extra to serve

    1 medium egg

    1 tbsp of olive oil


    To make the Tomato Sauce


    1 tbsp of olive oil

    1 courgette , coarsely grated

    3 garlic cloves, finely grated

    1 tbsp tomato purée

    pinch caster sugar

    splash red wine vinegar

    2x 400g tins chopped tomato


    Method


    • Push the the sausage meat out of the sausage skins into a large bowl and add the mince. Pop in the rest of the meatball ingredients, apart from the olive oil, into the bowl and season with black pepper. Now the best bit! Let the children have a good old squish with all the ingredients, until it is completely mixed up. then bind everything together through your hands until completely mixed.


    • Roll the sausage and mince mix into golf ball sizes and place them on a dish ready for the next stage.


    • While the children are rolling the meatballs, us adults can make the sauce. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the courgettes and garlic, and cook for at least 5 mins or until soft and mushy. Stir in the tomato puree, sugar and vinegar and leave for 1 min. then tip in the tomatoes and simmer for 5 mins.


    • Last stage :) Heat the oil in a frying pan, and working in batches, brown the meatballs on all sides. Once brown add them into the sauce (this part is def. for the adults).


    • Simmer the sauce for 15 mins, stirring gently until the meatballs are cooked thoroughly. Serve with spaghetti, or other types of pasta of your choice and add the extra grated Parmesan......


    • If allowed by the little ones, we could always add a little coriander to taste :)


    Enjoy and Stay Safe!!
