Beef Meatballs and Linguine

with tomato spinach sauce

The tangy tomato sauce and al dente linguine in this dish may be delicious in their own right, but the succulent 100% Irish beef meatballs might just be the best thing about this dish!

Instructions

Make the Pasta
1
  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the linguine.
  • When boiling, add the linguine to the water and bring back to the boil.
  • Cook until softened, 12 mins.
  • Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pot, off the heat.
  • Drizzle with oil and stir through to prevent sticking.

TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Get Prepped
2
  • Meanwhile, halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Shape the Meatballs
3
  • In a large bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, 2 tbsp water and ½ tsp salt (double both for 4p).
  • Add the beef mince and half the dried Italian herbs (double for 4p).
  • Season with pepper and mix together by hand.
  • Roll into evenly-sized balls, five per person. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
Cook the Meatballs
4
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, fry the beef meatballs until browned all over and cooked through, shifting frequently, 10-12 mins. IMPORTANT: Meatballs are cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Once cooked, remove from the pan and cover to keep warm.
Simmer the Sauce
5
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat, with a drizzle of oil if needed.
  • Fry the onion and garlic until slightly softened, 3-4 mins.
  • Add the stock powder, passata, Worcester sauce, 1 tsp sugar and 50ml water (double both for 4p). Simmer until thickened slightly, 5-7 mins.
  • Mix through the spinach. Add the meatballs and cook until warmed through, 1-2 mins.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir through a knob of butter.
Garnish and Serve
6
  • Toss the drained pasta through the meatballs and sauce.
  • Divide between bowls.
  • Garnish with a sprinkling of cheese.
