Large Frying Pan
Large Pan



• Boil the kettle. Finely chop onion (see ingredients). • In a medium bowl, combine beef mince, garlic & herb seasoning, fine breadcrumbs and the egg • Using damp hands, roll heaped spoonfuls of beef mixture into small meatballs (4-5 per person). Transfer to a plate.


• In a large frying pan, heat a generous drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. • Cook meatballs, turning, until browned and cooked through, 8-10 minutes (cook in batches if your pan is getting crowded). Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.


• Meanwhile, pour boiling water into a large saucepan with a pinch of salt. • Cook spaghetti in boiling water, over high heat, until ‘al dente’, 10 minutes. • Reserve pasta water (1/2 cup for 2 people / 1 cup for 4 people). Drain spaghetti, then return to saucepan.

Little cooks: Older kids can help add the pasta to the saucepan under adult supervision. Be careful, the water is boiling!


• Wipe out and return pan to medium-high heat, with a drizzle of olive oil. • Cook diced bacon and onion, breaking up with a spoon, until golden, 4-5 minutes. • Reduce heat to medium. Add the balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and a splash of water and mix well. Cook until dark and sticky, 3-5 minutes.


• Add Nan's special seasoning and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. • Add tinned cherry tomatoes, vegetable stock powder and reserved pasta water. Simmer, lightly crushing tomatoes with a spoon, until reduced, 3-4 minutes. • Remove pan from heat and add baby leaves, the butter, meatballs and cooked spaghetti. Stir to combine. Season to taste.


• Divide spiced beef meatball and bacon spaghetti between bowls. Sprinkle over grated Parmesan cheese to serve. Enjoy!

Little cooks: Add the finishing touch by sprinkling the cheese on top.
