Five days of preparing and executing a long list menu, was in a nutshell, demanding on the nerves and energy, so much so that I finally suggested that we have something simple for dinner tonight. I proposed that we have my version of Spaghetti Bolognese; one with chicken meat balls instead of beef meet balls!
1/2 kg minced chicken meat
a pinch of Italian herbs
some salt and pepper
Mix everything together, form into bite size balls and leave covered for about twenty minutes. Then fry in a little oil until lightly browned.
For the sauce I used 2 tins of chopped plum tomatoes, 1 chopped Bombay onion, a pinch of oregano and some salt, pepper and sugar. Heat some oil, sweat the onion, then add the tomatoes, oregano and seasoning. Put the chicken meat balls into the sauce and simmer for a while. To serve, put the par-boiled spaghetti into a bowl, spoon the sauce and chicken meatballs and grate some Parmesan cheese on top. Serve hot!
