The Saucy Italian.

spiceymeatballs

We use a lot of tinned tomatoes in this house and I mean a lot! Pasta dishes, casseroles, cacciatori, soups.. tinned tomatoes are an essential item in our pantry. Recently I found the Mutti range and they are probably the best tinned tomatoes we have tried.
A few nights ago, I tried the Spicy Italian Meatballs recipe from the Mutti website.

The website is fantastic and has so many great recipes on it. I am always getting stuck on what to make the family for dinner and any help with that is always handy.

The Spicy Meatballs were a huge hit with the boys, so I thought I would share the recipe with you:

Ingredients for 4 people

450g of minced pork
400g of Mutti Polpa – Finely chopped tomato pulp
1 egg
1 spring onion
1 clove of garlic
1 teaspoon of cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder
1/2 cup of breadcrumbs
seed oil for frying
coriander
salt

Method:

Finely dice the spring onion and mix it with the meat, garlic, half of the chilli powder, cumin seeds, breadcrumbs, egg and salt, in a bowl.
Roll the mixture obtained into balls. In a pan heat the seed oil and fry over high heat for a few minutes.
Meanwhile cook the Polpa – Finely chopped tomato pulp with the remaining chilli powder and a generous sprinkling of salt. Add the meatballs to the sauce and leave them to flavour in the sauce for a few minutes. Serve the meatballs hot with a sprinkling of chopped fresh coriander.

I served the meat balls with fresh fettuccine but you could serve them with vegetables or other pasta.
