Racing Red Spaghetti Meatballs

Method

1. To make the tomato sauce, fry the onions in the olive oil until just tender and then add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to the boil then turn down the heat and simmer very gently for about 40 minutes.

2. In another pan, heat a knob of butter until melted then cook the meatballs for 10 minutes or so, turning all the time so that they brown evenly.

3. At the same time, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water according to the packaging’s instructions. Drain and put back in the pot with a good knob of butter and plenty of salt and pepper.

4. When the sauce is ready, add it to the meatball pan and cook together for another 2 to 3 minutes, stirring the base of the pan to deglaze all the meaty residue.

5. Serve the hot buttered pasta with the meatballs and sauce spooned over, and with torn basil and grated cheese as a topping.
