What you'll need:

  • 500g boerewors, mince removed from sausage casing
  • 50g grated mozzarella
  • 3 onions, finely chopped
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 500g spaghetti, cooked according to pack instructions
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 x 400g tins of chopped tomatoes
  • 30ml tomato puree
  • A pinch of sugar
  • Handful of chopped parsley
Serves: 4
Time: 25 minutes



Make the meatballs by combining the sausage meat, cheese, and chopped onions. With wet hands, form them into balls, and then fry in a pan until golden all over. Set aside in a bowl for later.


In the same pan, lightly saute the sliced onions in a little oil until soft and translucent. Add the chopped garlic for 1 minute, before tipping in the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, and a pinch of sugar. Simmer for 15 minutes to thicken, then season to taste.


Return the meatballs to the pan, and cook for a couple of minutes to ensure everything is heated through. Serve on a bed of spaghetti, topped with a scattering of parsely.
