Gluten gratis 'SPAGETTI & MEATBALLS'

WOW! A meal my children loved, doesn't happen much at the moment, it's tidak easy task trying to find meals that the littlies love. I simply adapted an old meatball recipe and the rest is easy peasy! My recipe is based on a family of 5 and the portions are medium sized and include 1 teenage boy and a man!

Pasta.. I use San Remo GF Spagetti pasta

Tomato Sauce..
1 tin chopped tomatoes (I use plain chopped without added herbs-up to your tastebuds)
1 small tin tomato paste
1 Tbspn balsamic vinegar
1 Tbspn brown sugar
1/4 tspn salt
1 clove garlic finely chopped
Pepper to taste
1/4 cup water
You can add herbs to taste, its personal preferance! We don't like herbs much.
I put this all into a frying pan and simmer away for about 10-20minutes until it's well reduced and has thickened.

Meatballs..
700g+ good quality prime beef mince
1 medium finely chopped onion
1-2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 egg
1 heaped tspn beef stock powder (I use Massel Beef Stock Powder)
1 tspn soy sauce (I use 'Sungold Soy Sauce - Thick, bought for $4 from Pak'n'Save, NZ)
1/4 cup GF breadcrumbs (or I use Orgran GF all purpose Rice Crumbs)
Salt & Pepper to taste
I mix this all well in a bowl and roll desertspoon fulls into balls and put into a frying pan with 1cm olive oil. Cover & cook for 10-15 minutes turning regularly and until cooked in the centre)
I take out the meatballs and put them into the frying pan with the tomato sauce and heat through when ready to eat.

Cook spagetti pasta while cooking the meatballs and serve tomato sauce covered meatballs on top of a pile of spagetti, you can grate parmasan or cheese over the top. I am really looking forward to trying mozerella on top, one day!

As mentioned we have a little one who cantidakt eat tomatoes at the moment, so I do tidakt put his meatballs into the tomato sauce, but simply leave them without a sauce and he loves it all the same. (you could use a 'tidak-Mato' sauce recipe, if they like it!)
