Cheesy Beef and Lamb Meatballs with Pasta

Here’s my quick, easy and special treat for that special person – cheesy beef and lamb meatballs with pasta.

I use my always faithful Maa’s Tomato Sauce to give it that little extra something.



  • 1. Make the Maa's Tomato Sauce (Follow the Recipe on this site) and set aside
  • 2. Preheat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6
  • 3. Mix the meatball ingredients together in a bowl
  • 4. Using damp hands shape into truffle-size balls and roll in flour to coat. Arrange the meatballs on a rack on a baking tray and roast until browned and cooked through (about 25 minutes). Add the pepper shapes to the rack for the last 10 minutes of roasting
  • 5. Remove all from the oven
  • 6. Put the sauce back on the heat and stir in the mascarpone cream
  • 7. Add the meatballs to the sauce and leave to gently bubble for 10-15 minutes whilst you cook the linguine
  • 8. Serve garnished with the roast peppers, baby spinach and parmesan cheese
