The simplest of dishes so benefit from the best ingredients; and this recipe is about the simplest you can get. Spaghetti and Meatballs an Italian classic lifted to tasty heights by using the best veal meatballs I have every sampled.
A batch of meats products, various cuts and mince, was sent over from Westin Gourmet and included several packs from the famed welfare-centric Brookfield Farm in Dorset. Much fun then had considering the dishes in which to indulge the meats and then actually cooking them. The key with the simplicity of this Spaghetti and Meatballs Recipe is a quality tomato sauce. Of course I could have roasted a collection of tomatoes and sieved them to make the sauce, but it was mid-week and frankly I couldn’t be arsed. Two tins of chopped Cirio Tuscan tomatoes would have to suffice. The chicken stock was however homemade. The garlic home-grown.
And a wine match? Go for something Italian – a Chianti or a Barbera.
