Spaghetti in Clapham

Thought I would share a spaghetti recipe I made for my friends in London.

1 kilo ground beef
1 kilo ground pork
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup cork flakes
1/2 cup parsley (chopped)
2 large eggs
4 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)

mash up corn flakes and add all ingredients. Mix well and make 3-4 inch meatballs. I tend to like making bigger meatballs but the size shouldn't matter too much. Heat a cup of olive oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Add meatballs and do not disturb for about 3 minutes. Turn meatballs and brown for another 3 minutes. Remove meatballs.

2 cans plum tomatoes
2 cans tomato sauce
2 cloves of garlic (sliced)
1 large carrot (cubed)
1 large onion (sliced)
crushed red peppers
fresh basil (sliced)
parsley (chopped)
cayenne pepper
raw sugar
salt and pepper

Place canned plum tomatoes into a bowl and mash. Combine tomato sauce. Heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pot and add the onions, garlic and carrots cook for a few minutes stirring frequently so that the onions or garlic do not burn. Add the sauce and the meatballs and cook for about 30 minutes longer. Add the basil and the parsley towards the end. Season with the remaining ingredients to taste.
