Classic Spaghetti & Meatballs

Make this into a kids friendly recipe as you get the kids to help you roll out the meatballs. This recipe has a little twist in which I add some sausage meat to make it even more flavourful. I lay tomato sauce on some beautifully cooked spaghetti and then top with the meatballs. Just perfect!



300 grams minced lamb
2-3 pork/chicken sausages, remove meat from the skin
3 tsp garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup parsley, roughly chopped
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp dried parsley
2 tbsp dried oregano
2 cans of tomatoes, crushed
150 grams Daawat Spaghetti, cooked


In a bowl, mix the lamb mince, sausage meat, garlic, onion, egg, parsley, parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and salt and pepper.
Take 1 tbsp of the mixture into your palms and form a round ball.
Place the meat balls onto a baking tray lined with baking paper, drizzle some olive oil and bake in an oven preheated at 180C for 20-25 minutes or until browned.
For the sauce, heat olive oil and add parsley, oregano and garlic and saute for 30 seconds.
Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper and let simmer for 10-12 minutes.
To serve, place the boiled spaghetti in your serving dish, top with meat balls and the lovely tomato sauce.
