*we exchanged the pork mince in this recipe for ground beef, because that was all we had on hand, but it was still very good - the family enjoyed it greatly!*
500g (1lb) pork mince
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsely
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 cup stale breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 tablespoons olive oil
400g (14oz) canned tomatoes
600ml (20 fl oz) bottled tomato pasta sauce
375g (13 oz) spaghetti
1/3 cup finely grated romano cheese (we used ordinary grated cheese as the romano cheese would have added too much expense to the meal on our budget!)
Combine pork mince, parsley, garlic, egg, breadcrumbs and paste in large bowl; roll tablespoons of meat mixture into balls. Heat oil in large saucepan; cook meatballs, in batches, until browned all over.
Place undrained crushed tomatoes and sauce in the pan; bring to a boil, Return meatballs to pan, reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, about 10 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.
Meanwhile, cook pasta in large saucepan of boiling water, uncovered, until just tender. Drain. Divide pasta among serving bowls; top with meatballs, sprinkle with cheese.
