meatballs with spaghetti and tomato sauce

delia smith

For the meatballs:

225g minced pork

1 dessertspoon chopped sage leaves

95g mortadella or unsmoked bacon

2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan (parmigiano reggiano)

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves 75g white bread without crusts soaked in 2 tablespoons milk

1 large egg

a little nutmeg

salt and freshly milled black pepper

To cook and serve:

12 tablespoons groundnut or other flavourless oil for frying

450g spaghetti

1 quantity tomato sauce (qv)

a little parmesan (parmigiano reggiano)

a few fresh basil leaves

To make the meatballs all you do is place all the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor and blend everything on a low speed until thoroughly blended.

If you dont have a processor chop everything as finely as possible with a sharp knife and blend it with a fork.

Now take walnut sized pieces of the mixture and shape them into rounds you should end up with 24 meatballs.

Put them in a large dish or on a tray cover with clingfilm and chill for about 30 minutes to firm up.

Preheat the oven to a low setting.

When you are ready to cook the meatballs heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large frying pan and over a fairly high heat add 12 meatballs at a time and cook them until they are crispy and brown all over adding a little more oil as necessary.

This will take 45 minutes per batch so as they are cooked remove them to a plate and keep them warm covered with foil in the oven.

Cook the pasta and gently warm the tomato sauce.

Drain the pasta return it to the pan and toss in the tomato sauce quickly mix well and then pile it on to plates.

Top with the meatballs sprinkle with some freshly grated Parmesan and finish with a few basil leaves.

The Americans invented meatballs to go with spaghetti and there are lots of ground rules but the main criteria for any meatball is that it should have a kind of melt in the mouth lightness and not be heavy and bouncy These I think are just right.

Serves 4 (makes 24 meatballs)
