    Place all the ingredients into a bowl and mix together.
  • STEP 2
    Then shape into equal size balls, should make 6 to 10 depending on what size you prefer.
  • STEP 3
    put the balls on to a plate, cover and Place into a fringe for 30mins so thay hold their shape.
  • STEP 4
    Heat a little oil in a frying pan. Place the chilled meatballs into the oil and fry gently on a low heat for about 20mins turning occasionally until browned.
  • STEP 5
    Once cooked serve with spaghetti and a sauce of your choice. I like Tagliatelle and a spicy tomato sauce.
