Course Main Course
Servings 4


  • 12 Grass-fed beef meatballs
  • 2 tbsp Rice bran oil
  • 1 packet spaghetti or pasta of your choice
  • 4 tbsp  Parmesan cheese


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion Finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic Crushed
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup beef stock or water
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil (or 2 tsp dried basil)
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Pasta Sauce:

  • On a medium heat, sauté the garlic and onion with oil in a frying pan. Ensure that they become soft and almost translucent.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients to your pan and simmer for another 5mins. After this, remove from the heat.

Cooking and assembly:

  • Again, on a medium heat, use a large frying pan to heat the oil. Fry the meatballs in batches and use tongs to ensure that they are well-browned all over. Once your meatballs are cooked through, remove them from the heat.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Cook your pasta for 8-10 minutes (or for however long your packet instructs).
  • During this time, heat up your sauce in a pan.


  • Place your pasta in bowls and top with your meatballs and sauce. Finish with shavings of parmesan.


Add a little extra to this everyday dish to including some chilli and sundried tomatoes! Make sure you finish with some fresh herbs and extra parmesan for more indulgence!
