Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Baked Meatballs With Tomato Sauce & Linguine

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Add the beef mincepanko breadcrumbs and a generous pinch of salt and pepper to a bowl

Mix thoroughly until fully combined

Divide the mixture into 6 [12] and roll them into meatballs

2 Baked Meatballs With Tomato Sauce & Linguine

Boil half a kettle

Peel and finely grate the red onion[s]

3 Baked Meatballs With Tomato Sauce & Linguine

Sit the meatballs over the grated onion in an oven-proof dish with a drizzle of olive oil

Put the dish in the oven for 5-6 min or until the onion has started to soften

4 Baked Meatballs With Tomato Sauce & Linguine

While the onion is softening, dissolve the Knorr beef stock cube[s], tomato paste and a pinch of sugar in 150ml [200ml] boiled water

Add the dried oregano, balsamic vinegar, chopped tomatoes and give everything a good mix up – this is your tomato sauce

5 Baked Meatballs With Tomato Sauce & Linguine

Once the onion has softened, add the tomato sauce to the dish and cook for 25-30 min or until the meatballs are cooked through and the sauce has thickened to a ragù-like consistency

6 Baked Meatballs With Tomato Sauce & Linguine

Meanwhile, re-boil a kettle

Once the meatballs have been cooking for 10-15 min, add the linguine to a pot of boiled water with a large pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Cook the linguine for 8-10 min or until cooked with a slight bite

Once done, drain the linguine

7 Baked Meatballs With Tomato Sauce & Linguine

Wash and pat the baby leaf spinach dry

Once the meatballs are cooked, remove the dish from the oven and top with the spinach

Return the dish to the oven and cook for 1-2 min further or until the spinach has started to wilt

Mix it all together – these are your beef meatballs with tomato sauce
