Last night I gave this recipe a go from the Donna Hay Kids magazine from 2010. I love the Donna Hay kids magazine because the recipes are usually quick and easy ideas but they taste delicious. I always find new recipes in these magazines. I am not into making dinners that require a million ingredients from expensive grocers. This is a quick and easy recipe and was delicious!
Saucy Meatball Pasta by Donna Hay
2 slices white bread
1/3 cup milk
500g mince (the recipe says pork but I used beef)
2 tsp finely grated lemon rind
2 tbs olive oil
1 clove garlic crushed
1 brown onion finely chopped
700g tomato puree
2 cups chicken stock
1 tbs caster sugar
sea salt and black pepper
400g cooked fettuccine
Place milk and bread in a bowl and set aside for 2 minutes or until milk is absorbed. Add the mince and lemon rind and mix to combine.
Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls. Heat half the oil in a pan over high heat. Add the meatballs and cook for 4 minutes or until brown. Remove from pan.
Add remaining oil, garlic and onion. Cook for 5 minutes or until tender. Add the tomato puree, stock, sugar, salt & pepper. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Return the meatballs and cook for 10 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
Top fettuccine with meatballs, sauce and parmesan. Enjoy!
