Pasta Pomadoro with Meatballs

Out of curiosity I bought a cookery book called How to Feed a Man With Love - it's very different to the other books I've got and I feel deserves an entire blog post in itself, so watch this space for a review. In the meantime though I wanted to post this recipe I made from the book - at least, the recipe for the sauce is from this book, the meatball recipe is an old one I already knew.

Pasta Pomadoro (pasta with tomato sauce)
You need:
1 clove garlic
1 carton passata (crushed tomatoes)
squeeze of tomato puree
olive oil
2 tsp sugar
fresh basil
salt, pepper

Crush the garlic and fry in olive oil

Add the passata to the pan and stir in the sugar, tomato puree and season.

Add the fresh basil and allow the sauce to simmer

To make the meatballs, you need:
minced beef
parmesan cheese
dried oregano
half an onion, finely chopped

Mix the parmesan, oregano and onion in a bowl

Add the mince and mix well

Roll into balls then fry until browned

Serve with the tomato sauce and spaghetti
