Jamie Oliver Meatballs
This is a simple post, following on from a rather hectic week. It seemed right to share this recipe with you. So I am.
You all know I'm a fan of twirling...and what better way to accompany a twirl than with beautiful juicy meatballs. One of my favourtie meatball recipes is this Jamie Oliver gem (recipe link). I have long doted on Jamie Oliver, I adore him in each and every way. And at the risk of sounding a little suspect, I adore his meatballs too.
The zesty, spiced flavour is light and lovely. Coupled with a rich tomato sauce, this is a bit of a special dish. Ben and I always try to double the recipe and freeze a whole bunch of meatballs and sauce, so that we have meatballs whenever we want. In a perfect world, everyone would have meatballs whenever they wanted, right?...
This dish makes for a fabulous mid-week Winter comfort meal. Perfect for when you've had one of those days, when obstacles to productivity seem to pop up at regular intervals in ascending intensity, and traffic seems to move that little bit slower than usual on the way home. All you need to do is defrost your serving, pop some pasta into boiling salted water, cuddle up on the couch with your loved one (significant other/family/friend/pup/glass of wine), and talk not about your frustrating day, rather marvel at how fabulous these meatballs are. You'll end up feeling lighter, trust me.
