Meatball pasta

This Meatball pasta is a nice alternative to the classic recipe. The Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste is quite subtle, but enough to make this worth a go. We hope you enjoy it!

How to make it

  1. Begin by putting the plum tomatoes in the oven to roast while you prepare the meatballs.
  2. Mix all the ingredients for the meatballs together in a bowl.
  3. Once mixed, separate into small balls and leave in fridge while you make the sauce.
  4. Gently fry the garlic with the onion and salt & pepper.
  5. Once softened, add the tomatoes (tinned & roasted), olive oil, bay leaves (whole), sugar and chicken stock.
  6. Brown the meatballs in a hot frying pan with the oil (don’t turn too much as caramelising the meat slightly will give you better flavour).
  7. Add the meatballs to the sauce and leave to cook without a lid for an hour.
  8. With about 15 mins cooking time left, cook your linguine in salty water with a little oil (to stop sticking together).
  9. Serve with a little parsley and parmesan.
