Nutrition: per serving


  • 2 tbsp olive oil , plus extra for greasing and drizzling
  • 2 onions , finely chopped
  • 500g pork mince
  • 1 large egg
  • 75g fresh breadcrumbs
  • 15 sage leaves , roughly chopped
  • 100g feta , crumbled
  • 3 bay leaves , 1 finely chopped
  • 680g jar passata
  • 600g spaghetti


  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/160 fan/gas 4 and grease an ovenproof dish. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, add the onions, sizzle for 5 mins, then remove half and put in a large bowl with the mince, egg, breadcrumbs, sage, feta and chopped bay. Season well and mix. Shape into a long sausage shape and transfer to the greased dish. Put the remaining bay leaves on top, drizzle with a little more oil and put in the oven for 40-45 mins until cooked through.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, keep the remaining onions on a low heat in the pan. Cook for 2 mins, then increase the heat and pour in the passata with 70ml water. Bubble for 30 mins on a low heat, stirring often, or until the meatloaf is ready to come out of the oven. Season to taste.

  • STEP 3

    Cook the spaghetti following pack instructions. When everything is ready, toss the spaghetti in the tomato sauce, slice the meatloaf and let everyone help themselves.
