Chicken Meatballs with Garlic Spaghetti

I am so excited about blogging today because we have now officially moved from a blog (thanks wordpress.com for the amazing 3 years!) to a website! Its taken a couple of weeks of thinking and talking it over with the husband as to whether this was a great idea and he thought it was, just cause the blog has been doing great and getting visits from countries that I don’t even have friends at.  Thanks for all the support and its been so encouraging hearing from a lot of readers who have been inspired to cook because of EaterSpot!

Summary

    Ingredients

    Chicken Meatballs:
    750 gms Mince Chicken:
    1 Onion: medium chopped fine
    1 tbsp Parsley: chopped
    Clove : 1 Garlic mashed
    1 tsp Fennel seeds:
    1 Egg: whisked
    1/2 cup Breadcrumbs:
    1/2 cup Parmesan cheese:
    1/2 Lemon Zest: of lemon
    to taste Salt and Pepper
    1 jar Pasta sauce:
    Garlic Spaghetti:
    packet Spaghetti: a whole
    cloves: 6-7 cloves Garlic mashed into a paste
    Red chilli flakes
    Olive Oil: a generous amount
    to taste Salt and pepper

    Steps

    1. Preheat your oven to 180c
    2. In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients mentioned under Chicken Meatballs excluding the pasta sauce. Next with the help of your hands make the nice, round, preferably large meatballs. Place on a baking tray and bake in the oven. Shouldn’t take very long, possibly 15mins or so
    3. While the meatballs were baking, I warmed half a jar of store bought pasta sauce in a sauce pan. Leave it in on low heat
    4. Cook the spaghetti in some boiling water. Mash the garlic cloves to a fine paste. Once the spaghetti is cooked, drain and transfer back to the pot. Add the mashed garlic, red chilli flakes and the olive oil. I mentioned generous amount because I eyeballed it :). Season with salt and pepper
    5. Once the meatballs were done, I added them to the pasta sauce and gave it a quick stir
    6. Get ready to serve! On a plate I put some garlic spaghetti and topped it with the yummy chicken parmesan meatballs
    7. Absolutely yum!
