This classic Italian dish is sure to steal the heart of your younger cooking fans. I normally make mini meatballs just the size of blue grapes, when serving the little kids.
Ground beef - 1 lb
Bread crumbs- 2 tbsp
Egg - 1
Parmesan cheese - 1tbsp freshly ground
Black pepper -1/2 tsp freshly ground
Minced garlic - 1/2 tsp
Parsley- 1/2 tsp fresh or dried.
Onion - 1/2 cup chopped
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Whole tomatoes - 1 can ,14 oz crushed
Tomato paste - 6 oz
Basil fresh or dried - 1/2 tsp
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Garlic cloves - 2 minced
Oregano - 1/4 tsp
Parmesan cheese - 2 tbsp freshly grated.
Saute onions in olive oil over a medium heat. Stir in remaining sauce ingredients and allow it to cook for 5 mins. Add the finished meatballs into the sauce and simmer for 20 minutes.
Start cooking spaghetti as per the instructions on the packet.
Stir the cheese into the sauce and meatballs, and serve over the cooked spaghetti. If you are serving the kids, mix the sauce in the spagetti and sprinkle some grated cheese or powdered parmesan cheese on top, it makes it easier for them to eat.
