Waitrose

Pork meatballs with fresh tomato & rosemary sauce

Ingredients

500g pork mince
75g fresh breadcrumbs
1 medium essential Waitrose Free Range Egg, beaten
4 anchovy fillets, finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
2 tbsp plain flour, seasoned

FOR THE SAUCE
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
8 large fresh plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
½ tsp dried chilli flakes
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
250g egg tagliatelle, cooked according to pack instructions
Grated Parmigiano Reggiano, to serve
 

Method

1. Mix the mince, breadcrumbs, egg, anchovies, parsley and some seasoning together in a large bowl until thoroughly combined – the easiest way to do this is with your hands. Roll into about 20 walnut-sized balls. Cover and chill while you make the sauce.

2. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a medium pan, add the garlic, tomatoes, rosemary, chilli flakes and seasoning, and simmer for 5-8 minutes until pulpy. Stir in the vinegar and check the seasoning.

3. Roll the meatballs in the seasoned flour. Heat the remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the meatballs in batches for 5-6 minutes until browned on all sides. Drain on kitchen paper and add to the tomato sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes until the pork is cooked through with no pink meat then serve with the freshly cooked tagliatelle and grated fresh Parmigiano Reggiano.
