Method

  • Add a drizzle of olive oil to a large non-stick frying pan. Fry off the meatballs in the pan until browned and cooked through. Remove and set aside.
  • Discard any excess oil or fat leftover from cooking the meatballs. Use the same pan to make your pasta sauce. Over a medium heat, gently fry the onions for ten minutes until translucent. Add the garlic and the red chilli and continue to cook for a further three minutes.
  • Add the tin of tomatoes to the pan and mix well. Add the sugar and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well and bring to the boil, allowing to simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Add the meatballs back to the sauce and simmer for a further 10 minutes, or until the meatballs are heated through.
  • Meanwhile, cook your spaghetti according to the packet's instructions.
  • Mix your cooked spaghetti with your meatballs and tomato sauce. Serve with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese and some fresh basil on top.
