Ingredients

  • 250 g Spaghetti
  • 400 g Beef Ground
  • 1 Small Onion finely chopped
  • 1 Garlic minced
  • 1 Eggs
  • 2 tbsp Breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp Cheese grated
  • 1 tsp Oregano Dried
  • 400 g Tomatoes Canned, Chopped
  • 1 tsp Tomato Paste
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • Salt And Black Pepper
  • Fresh Basil Leaves For Garnish

Instructions

  • Combine the ground beef, finely chopped onion, minced garlic, egg, breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, dried oregano, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  • Shape the mixture into small meatballs, approximately 1-inch in diameter.
  • Heat a small amount of oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the meatballs and cook until they are browned on all sides and fully cooked, which should take about 10-12 minutes. Remove the cooked meatballs from the pan and set them aside.
  • In the same pan, add the canned chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir the ingredients together and bring them to a simmer. Allow the sauce to cook for roughly 10 minutes, letting it thicken.
  • While the sauce is simmering, prepare the spaghetti according to the package instructions until it reaches the al dente stage. Drain the cooked spaghetti and set it aside.
  • Once the tomato sauce has thickened to your liking, return the cooked meatballs to the pan. Let them simmer for an additional 5 minutes, allowing the meatballs to absorb some of the sauce’s flavours.
  • To serve, place the spaghetti on plates, top it with the meatballs and the tomato sauce. Finish by garnishing with fresh basil leaves.
