'life is like a bowl of spaghetti, every once in a while you get a meatball'This is such an easy dish to make and fun to eat.
For kids it is nice to add the toppings and sip up the spaghetti.
I used a ready to go sauce from Bertolli.
I do like fresh ingredients but this sauce has such an intense tomato flavor I don't mind using it.
DO / SAUCEAdd chopped onions and garlic to oil in frying pan an add the lean ground beef
When cooked add the sauce, oregano and some ripped leaves of basil
Let this cook as long as possible
Meanwhile cook the spaghetti al dente
DO / MEATBALLSSeason the lean ground beef with:
Powdered paprika, salt & pepper
Bake these until brown and add them to the sauce to cook well done
When finished put the pasta into the sauce and stir.
Put on a plate and add the meatballs, basil and grana padano.
