Spaghetti with Meatballs

Recipe bycmiller.86

1 potato, diced
14oz/400g ground steak
1 onion, finely chopped
1 egg
4 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
salt & pepper
all-purpose flour, for dusting
5 tbsp virgin olive oil
1.75 cups strained canned tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato paste
14oz/400g dried spaghetti
6 fresh basil leaves, shredded
freshly grated parmesan cheese

Place potato in a small pan, add cold water to cover and pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cook for 10-15 mins until tender, then drain. Either mash thoroughly with a potato masher or fork or pass through a potato ricer.

Combine the potato, steak, onion, egg and parlsey in bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper. Spread out the flour on a plate. With dampened hands, shape the meat mixture into walnut-size balls and roll in the flour. Shake off any excess.

Heat olive oil in a heavy-bottom skillet, add the meatballs and cook over medium heat, stirring and turning frequently for 8-10 mins or until golden all over.

Add the strained tomatoes and tomato paste and cook for an additional 10 mins or until the sauce is reduced and thickened.

Meanwhile, bring large pan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta, return to a boil and cook for 8-10 mins or until tender but still firm to bite.

Drain well and add to the meatball sauce, tossing well to coat. Transfer to a warmed serving dish, garnish with the basil leaves and grated parmesan cheese, and serve immediately.
