I felt a little bit of a bum last friday, and told my husband we'd just have pasta for dinner. bolognese. but somehow i felt a little bit guilty in fixing him a "lazy dinner" (not that he'd mind), so this lazy bum put a little bit more effort to the sphaghetti meal - i made some balletjes (meatballs).
I once thought i bought a can of plain tomato soup, but as soon as i opened the can, i saw tiny balletjes in them. the dutch love to have their soups with balletjes! i was careful from then onwards when i wanted to get a can of soup.
So, back to sphaghetti meatballs! I know they are the simplest things to make, but just thought i'd share it with you. so this is my version of it.
1 whole onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
600g minced beef
1 tbsp fresh or dried herbs (marjoram, rosemary, oregano)
1tbsp light soy sauce
a few good grinds of black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
Oil to shallow fry them
Just put everything in a large bowl, and then, using your hands, mix to combine, before shaping into small balls. You might find it a little bit time consuming but the end result will be worth it. easy peezy, the slow process of shaping them can be quite calming (for me at least, when your 7+mths baby's in the good hands of his dad!)
