Last night I made meatballs with a creamy tomato sauce and linguine for dinner. Originally the recipe is adapted from the Swedish food blog Smaskens. Smaskens translates to Yummy in English, which I think describes this dish very well. I tweaked the recipe a little bit though, since the original contains minced pork but I prefer beef. This pasta dish is truly delicious and feels very italian - and is quicker to make than you might think! 
Serves 4 people
This is what you need for the meatballs:
500g minced beef (or pork if you like)
1 tbsp capers, chopped
zest from 1 lemon
1 clove garlic
1 egg
0,5 dl chopped fresh parlsey
1 dl grated parmesan
salt and pepper
For the tomato sauce:
1 can of chopped tomatoes
1 can of whole tomatoes
1 shallot
2 cloves of garlic
Olive oil
1 dl white wine
0,5 dl double cream
sugar, salt and pepper
Mix all the ingredients for the meatballs in a bowl with a fork. Divide into small balls by rolling the mixture using your hands.
Finely chop the shallot and the garlic (or use a garlic press). Heat up a large pan and fry in olive oil (I use quite a lot of oil, be generous!) until the onion is soft but not brown. Add the tomatoes, wine and cream, season with a pinch of sugar and salt and pepper to taste. Add the meatballs and let them simmer in the sauce for around 30 minutes. Serve with linguine and an obscene amount of grated parmesan. Yummy!
Ps. I added A LOT more parmesan after the pic was taken. Just wanted to make that clear.

Welcome to my food blog!
I will share everything from baking disasters (such as the chocolate mousse I made a couple of months ago, uh I still shiver when thinking of it) to successful pasta dishes, to spatulas I fancy (my current one is pink), to reviews of food I eat around London. Or, as in this post, a pic of a lemon and poppy seed cake me and my mum baked for our joint birthday celebration. I hope you will enjoy reading my blog, and if you like, please feel free to leave a comment. It would make me mighty happy.
Love, Jenny
