Spaghetti MeatBalls

Yum yum, couldn't help it when i saw these meatballs on the shelve. I had this a couple of times in Glasgow, most of the time for dinner at someone else's place. The meatballs taste like the ones you get in IKEA but feels softer in texture. (Think its because the meatballs in IKEA are fried so it gives it that firmer crustier texture. The generic tomato sauce from Sainsbury tasted alright too, much better than Morrison's house brand.

1 onion
Sainsbury onion and garlic sauce
Swedish meatballs 1 packet
Spaghetti 200g
Cherry tomatos (as much as you like)
Table spoon of tomato pesto
Dried Basil

Fry the onions and garlic in oil. Next give the meatballs a good stir fry. Next the tomatos to evaporate some of the moisture in them and to give that skin a nice scalded surface. Spaghetti is next followed by the sauce and pesto. I used Burtoni pasta, more expensive than house brands but taste much better. Wait for the buy 1 get 1 free sales and stock up like 10 packets lol. I boiled it 1min below the recommended time because I knew i will be frying it later, so the waiting time actually steams up the pasta. Chop parsley gives it a nice aroma. I really like parsley.

There's enough food for 4 small eaters or 2 big fat eaters or 1 glutton like me... opps.
