Mamma’s secret recipe for spaghetti and Meatballs with an Italian sauce.


500g Mince Beef Mince
1 Cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
20ml Basil Pesto
1 Small Onion finely grated

The Sauce:
1 (400g) Tinned Tomatoes and chill
4 Fresh ripe Tomatoes, peeled
2 Onions Sliced
20ml Basil Pesto
Black Pepper and salt
10ml Sugar

How to

Mix all the ingredients together – by hand is the only way to really do it properly.

Make the balls the size of walnuts

Fry in a medium hot pan with a little oil until browned.

Remove the balls from the pan and set aside.

The Sauce:
Fry the onions until soft in the same pan you cooked the meatballs in.

Add the rest of the ingredients and cook down until it is soft – at least 30mins.
You can add water when necessary.

Add the meatballs to the sauce and cook for a further 40 minutes on a very low heat, stirring gently and adding water if it starts to get dry.

Serve with lots of spaghetti
