Spiced Meatballs with Tagliatelle

  • Mild

Mouth watering homemade spiced meatballs and tagliatelle from heaven! A firm favourite in my home! Always a crowd pleaser!

  • 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Serves 6
  • Medium


  • Sauce

  • Meatballs



Grate the carrots, dice the celery and onion, heat a little butter in a fry pan and fry until the onions are translucent. In the meantime place the passata in a large pan on a low heat, add the carrots, celery, onions, fresh basil, a splash of white wine vinegar, salt and pepper.

Place the mince in a bowl with the crushed garlic, pesto, parsley, parmesan, chilli flakes, onion powder and smoked paprika.

Now add the breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and beaten egg and mix throughly by hand.

(If it seems too wet add some more breadcrumbs or if too dry add a little more egg.)

Roll the mixture into 3 cm balls by hand pop them on to a clean tray (that fits in your fridge) cover and put the tray into the fridge for about 15 minutes.

Using the fry pan from earlier heat the olive oil and sear the meatballs until browned all over in batches, when done transfer them to the sauce to finish cooking, leave the sauce on a low simmer and cook for 30 minutes.

When your ready cook your tagliatelle.

Serve your tagliatelle with the meatballs and top with grated parmesan!
