You must know by now that I am the queen of making easy meals look really hard or passing shop-bought items off as my own, just by a little fine tweaking.
This is where my recipe for Easy Family Meatballs comes into it own.
I am showing you the vegetarian version made with Quorn Swedish Style Meatballs but Hubster and Boo had a meat version so you can do either.
As always, add what you like to the recipe-mushroom, chilli-any veg which you can chop finely. This is especially great if you have kids who don’t like veg.
Easy Family Meatballs with Quorn
Quorn Swedish Style Meatballs
Knob of butter
1 jar of pasta sauce
4 large cloves of garlic
3 table spoons double cream
1 table spoon chilli pesto
Parsley to garnish
Finely chop the onion and garlic.
Fry in the butter until soft.
Add the jar of sauce and allow to simmer.
Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti and meatballs according to pack instructions.
Add the sauce to the drained spaghetti and the cream and stir through.
At this point, I take Boo's portion out so it is a bit cooler and add the chilli pesto.
If using ordinary pesto, put it in before but Boo isn't a fan of hot food.
Serve and sprinkle the cheese and parsley.
If like me, you make a meat and vegetarian version of the dish, I toss the meatballs into the spaghetti on the plates.
If you just make one version, toss them in the pan.
