Homemade Meatballs in Tomato Sauce and Spaghetti, one of my favourite Italian dishes, and without a shadow of a doubt one of the best dishes I have ever cooked. Comforting, super easy to make, and so delicious, this is the ultimate comfort food that goes down well with the whole family. The beef meatballs are cooked to perfection, and the tomato sauce is rich and seasoned so well. Serve them with plenty of parmesan for the best Italian experience.
Place the minced beef in a large bowl, together with the finely chopped onion and garlic, salt, pepper and parmesan.
Shape 15 balls out of the mixture.
Heat up a frying pan and add the oil. Fry the meatballs gently for a few minutes. They will not be cooked through, we just want a bit of colour.
In a large saucepan, add the chopped tomatoes and beef stock and throw in meatballs. Season with salt and pepper, and add the parmesan too.
Leave to cook on a medium heat until the meatballs are cooked and the tomato sauce thickens.
