Unimumma’s Week 2 Recipes: Sausage Meatball Spaghetti

Sausage Meatball Spaghetti

Serves 4


  • 6 Sausages (it may vary according to type, the cheapest will still be delicious!)
  • 4 tsp Lazy Garlic
  • 4 tsp Lazy Chilli
  • 4 tsp Oregano
  • 4 tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 Tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 White onion
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 5 Frozen spinach clumps
  • Squeeze of tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp Crème fraîche or yogurt
  • 400g of spaghetti


  1. Squeeze out the sausage mince from the sausages, add in half of the herbs and spices, stir around with a metal spoon to combine all the ingredients together. You don’t need to add breadcrumbs and egg as sausages normally contain breadcrumbs to hold them together already!
  2. Roll the mixture into meatballs and leave in the fridge while you slice up the onion and pepper.
  3. In olive oil, fry off the onion, pepper, and meatballs with the rest of the chilli and garlic.
  4. Once browned, and the veg has softened, add in the tinned tomatoes, tomato puree and herbs and seasoning. Let this simmer away and thicken up to the consistency you want.
  5. Cook the pasta.
  6. Add in the frozen spinach and Crème fraiche and some pasta water.
  7. Place the pasta in a bowl, and spoon the meatballs and sauce over (Parmesan makes an excellent topper).
