Spaghetti and Cheats Meatballs
This simple Spaghetti and Cheats Meatballs is a favourite in our house, especially as I can cook it and have it on the table within 30 minutes - perfect for when you have three ‘hangry’ kids in the house!
Servings: 6 people
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 6 sausages
- 2 cloves garlic - crushed
- 1 brown onion - grated or finely chopped
- 1 zucchini - grated or finely chopped
- 525 gram jar of Heinz Pasta Sauce - Tomato and Basil
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 200 grams spaghetti - dry
Cook the pasta as per the packet instructions.
In the meantime, add the olive oil to the frying pan and heat over a medium heat. Cut the ends of the sausages and squeeze out the meat (directly into the frying pan) to form little meatballs.
Add the grated onion and crushed garlic and cook for 3 minutes or until the onion begins to turn translucent.Add the grated zucchini and cook for a further 3 minutes - tossing the sausage 'meatballs' regularly to ensure they are brown on each side.
Reduce the heat slightly and add the Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce and a pinch of pepper before cooking for a further 3 - 4 minutes or until the sausage meatballs are cooked through.
Use a pair of tongs to carefully transfer the cooked pasta directly into the frying pan and gently toss it through the sauce mixture to coat.
Divide between serving bowls and serve with parmesan cheese.
