Spaghetti Meatball Pasta!

Spaghetti Meatball Pasta!


-Meatballs     -Spaghetti     -Fresh or dried parsley, chives and dill (if you have any)    -2 onions   -Pepper

-Salt and pepper (3 grinds)      -Lazy garlic and chilli (1/2 tsp)      -Tin of chopped tomatoes    

-BBQ sauce (1 squeeze)      -Henderson's relish or Worchester sauce      -Paprika (2tsp)     -Mustard (2tsp)

-2 small handfuls of grated cheese 


What you need to do:

  1. Get your premade meatballs and follow the instructions on how to cook them.
  2. Get a large pan and add the spaghetti to the pan.
  3. Boil the kettle and fill the pan ¾ with boiling water. You could also add 2 grinds of salt to the pan.
  4. Chop up 2 onions, 1 pepper and your handfuls herbs (parsley, chives and dill). If you don’t have any fresh herbs, add 1 tbsp of dried herbs each to your pan.
  5. Get a frying type pan, add a little oil in and turn onto a medium heat (4).
  6. Add your chopped herbs and vegetables to your pan and cook off for about 10 minutes.
  7. Make sure you mix the veg regularly so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Make sure you check on your pasta too, mixing well.
  8. After 10 minutes, check on your meatballs to make sure they are cooked. Mine were at this point so I turned the oven off but I still kept the meatballs in the oven to keep warm. Make sure you check on your meatballs and do the same once yours have cooked (depending on packet instructions). 
  9. Now it is time to make your sauce. At this point, I would turn the heat of the vegetables off for now or keep it on 1, just until all of the ingredients have been added.
  10. Add 1 tin of chopped tomatoes to the pan. If you prefer more sauce with your pasta, add in 2 tins but you will then have to double up on the amount of ingredients in the next few steps.
  11. Add in 4 tbsp of Henderson’s relish/ Worchester sauce.
  12. Add in 3 grinds of salt and pepper.
  13. Add in ½ tsp of lazy garlic and chilli and 2 tsp of paprika.
  14. Add in 2 tsp of mustard.
  15. Add in 1 or 2 squeezes of BBQ sauce.
  16. Give it all a good mix.
  17. Turn the heat back up to a medium heat and mix your sauce regularly for a good 5 minutes, if not a little longer so that your garlic and other ingredients blends together.
  18. Add in 1-2 small handfuls of grated cheese.
  19. After 5-10 minutes, add the meatballs into the pan and give it a good mix.
  20. Drain off your pasta and you can either add the pasta to the sauce and give it a mix before serving, or you can serve your pasta onto/into a plate/bowl and then add the sauce & meatballs on top.
  21. For added flavour, you could chop up some more chives and sprinkle on the top!

Bon Appetit!
