METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C and lightly grease a medium-sized, 30x20cm baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • Add the beef mince, Hinds Spices Southern Grill All-In-One Seasoning and grate ½ cup of the hard cheese and mayonnaise into a large mixing bowl. Mix until well combined.
    CHEF'S TIP: The mayonnaise acts as a binder for the meatballs.
  • Scoop 1 tablespoon of the mince mixture into your hands and roll it into a meatball; repeat until you’ve used all the mince.
  • Place the meatballs into the baking dish and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the meatballs have browned and caramelised.
  • Once the meatballs are browned, remove the dish from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 180°C. Add both tins of Rhodes Quality Chopped & Peeled Tomatoes, crushed garlic and uncooked pasta.
    CHEF'S TIP: Any quick-cooking vegetables can be added here.
  • Use one Rhodes Quality tin to measure a tin full of warm water and pour it into the baking dish.
  • Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 40-45 minutes or until the pasta is aldente.
  • Remove the bake from the oven and grate in ¼ cup of the remaining hard cheese before stirring it through. Garnish by grating the remaining ¼ cup of hard cheese and adding fresh basil.
  • Serve alongside a glass of the Rhodes Quality Mango 100% Fruit Juice Blend, and Enjoy!
