MAA Meatballs bring all the...
I'm the only Mirza left in the country! Oww Maarya left today, and I'm feeling quite sad. I had an awesome time whilst she was here and I hope that she did too! I'm going to badger her on the phone to write a (brief) synopsis of her visit for the blog, although to be honest we mostly just ate and watched T.V. (I would use the 'sheepish' emoticon here if I had one)
I did very little cooking when my sister was around, we ate out or got take-away most nights, and Ma footed the bill most nights too, so to keep up the poor student façade and for any reading this I'm going to make Jamie Oliver's 'feed your family for a fiver' recipe for meatballs and spaghetti and tell you if you should!
Well you could, but don't be hesitant in adding a little more flavour, firstly with the tomato sauce a longer slower cooking time is recommendable a teaspoon of sugar will also help take away some of the sharpness of the sauce and don't limit your self to oregano a little dried basil is good too.
To the meatballs I added some spices! I couldn't help it, they were crying out for something. Some paprika (a teaspoon) and cumin about the same quantity and a some turmeric (half teaspoon). I also couldn't help but add a minced clove of garlic. This isn't the most authentic 'meatball and spaghetti' recipe, but its meatballs and spaghetti... so it doesn't have to be!
