Spaghetti & Meatballs | Gennaro Contaldo | #MyFoodMemories | AD

Hi lovely people. Today I’m going to make
Spaghetti with meatballs. This is one of the dish my father used to make. What a memory,
never forget. It was the flavour of the Parmesan and the garlic inside. They used to fried
all these lovely meatballs. So I have here 250 grams of pork. 250 grams of beef. Spread
them all round. Tablespoon of olive oil, a little salt, black pepper. All this memory
it almost feels as if my father is beside me. My hands are directed the way he used
to do it. One egg to bind everything together, fresh breadcrumbs, handful of parsley. 3 cloves
of garlic chopped quite fine. Make sure you got lovely cheese. 3 tablespoons. Parmesan
is the king. Now where the masterchef comes along, start to mix. This is another memory
of my father, he used to make me do that and he used to always say to me, ah yours is better
than mine. My father used to say not to make it bigger then that because if you make bigger
then that you can’t really grasp the spaghetti as well while you eating. Put some flour on
it. They’re all perfect round. I need to fry, so olive oil, lets get in with the meatball.
Give them a quick stir. Let me wash my hands. Turn down the temperature a little bit because
it cooks too fast. So good to work on this Hotpoint cooker because it can control the
gas the way you like. It is a joy. The meatball they are ready. My father would spoon out
the meatball and he always used to make extra, so he used to come along and they used to
get this lovely meatball, look at that. Oh my God. He was the king of making meatballs
and he used to say to me do you like it? I would say yes papa yes I do like it.
That his memory I got this feeling. Anyway. Yes lovely sauce, I need to put the meatball
inside. Cover, turn that just a little bit more and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. Fresh
spaghetti, what a joy. Hello Papa! Spread Spread inside, oh yes. Parmesan, leaves of a basil,
extra virgin oil. And this is spaghetti with meatballs. This is my memory, tell me yours. #myfoodmemories and click here on side to see more.
