Spaghetti and Meatballs

salt and pepper
1/4 cup grated parmesan, plus more for serving
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 large egg
450g beef mince
1/4 cup plain dired breadcrumbs
1 tbsp olive oil
1 can tinned tomatoes
300g spaghetti


Set a large pot of salted water to boil.  In a bowl combine parmesan, parsley, 
garlic, egg, 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper.  Add beef and breadcrumbs, 
mix gently, then form into 16 balls.
In a large frying pan heat oil, then add meatballs, turn occasionally 
until browned 8-10 mins.  Add tomatoes, bring to the boil, then simmer, 
cover partially and cook stirring occasionally until meatballs are 
cooked through 10-12 mins.
Meanwhile cook pasta until al dente.  Drain and return to pot, add meatballs 
and sauce, toss gently and serve with extra parmesan.
