Who loves meatballs? We do! Here’s an easy, tasty recipe for you to try at home. Serve with a side salad or some fresh, steamed greens. You’ll love it!

Ingredients:

400g pork or pork and beef sausages
Olive Oil
1 1/2 tbsp Sticky Balsamic (we love Sticky Balsamic Original for this recipe)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 brown onion, finely diced
1tsp dried chilli flakes (optional)
200g cherry tomatoes
400g spaghetti
700g tomato passata
Red wine (optional)
Salt & pepper
Fresh basil - one handful and extra to serve
Parmesan cheese

Method:

Squeeze the meat out of the sausage skins and roll into balls (expect 3 large or 5 small balls per sausage).

Cook meatballs in a lightly oiled frying pan. Once they start to brown, add Sticky Balsamic Original and stir.

As the meatballs and Sticky Balsamic Original start to caramelise, add onion, garlic, chilli, red wine (optional) and cherry tomatoes.

Once the tomatoes skins are starting to shrivel, pour in passata and season the sauce well with salt and pepper.

Add the basil and gently simmer the sauce until it is thick (from 10 minutes to 3 hours, depending on how thick you like the sauce and how long until dinner-time).

Put the Spaghetti on to cook.

Drain the spaghetti and pour into the delicious sauce. Stir it in and serve with fresh basil and freshly grated parmesan on top.

Serve with a fresh salad drizzled with Sticky Balsamic Original, or steamed greens drizzled with Sticky Balsamic Original.
