How to Cook Spaghetti and Meatballs

  1. Crack the egg and whisk it.
  2. In order to make the meatball mixture, use a large bowl and combine the chicken mince with whisked egg, onion, parsley, and breadcrumbs. Pinch off a piece of the meat mixture and gently roll between your hands to form small meatballs, around 1 1-2 inch (2,5 cm – 4 cm) in diameter. Continue shaping until all the meat is used.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet on high-heat. Add the meatballs and fry them for about 5 minutes, while turning them on all sides, to evenly cook them. Remove the meatballs from the heat and leave them aside until you make the sauce.
  4. Separately, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti and cook them according to the instructions on the package.
  5. For the spaghetti sauce, add the olive oil in a heated skillet and throw in the garlic cloves. Leave them on heat for about half a minute in order for them to leave their flavor in the pan. Add the tomato sauce and bring to a simmer. Season with chili flakes, salt and pepper. Add the meatballs and stir so that they can absorb the sauce. Cook for 2 minutes more. Add some chopped parsley on top.
  6. Top the spaghetti with the meatballs and serve them with shredded parmesan!
