This is a great example of how you do meatballs with a banging sauce. Everything is homemade and delicious. This recipe is from Gizzi Erskine from FoodTube. Be sure to check out how I’ve modified it so it’s healthier for you to eat.
The first problem I need to address with this recipe is the amount of oil added. There were several moments where the chef GROSSLY underestimated the amount of oil put in and there were moments where she just didn’t mention it. I counted a total of 10 tablespoons of oil.. can you spot it? In case you were wondering what 10 tablespoons of olive oil is like… picture 17 slices of bread. I’m dead serious.
90g of fresh Tagliatelle is the same as 6 slices of bread. I guarantee you, the amount she plated was well above 90g.
Combine the added oil with the pork mince and you will be shocked at how this “healthy” looking pasta dish can kill your waistline.
But do not worry! I’ve modified the dish so it’s super healthy.
The ingredients you need to watch here is the meat, the tagliatelle, the oil and the sugar. You also need to watch, to a lesser degree, the tomato puree, parmesan and all of those tomatoes. This is because you’re unlikely to have the qty that warrants any problems.
