- Beef mince
- Parmesan cheese
- Fresh basil (2 tbsp, finely chopped)
- Sea salt (1/2 tsp)
- Black pepper (1/2 tsp)
- Onion granules (1/2 tbsp)
- Chilli flakes (1 tsp)
- Dried basil (1 tbsp)
- Chopped tomatoes
- Olive oil (3 tbsp)
- Konjac tagliatelle (4 packets, rinsed and drained)

Add the beef, cheese, egg, salt and spices (including the fresh basil) into a bowl and mix well. Wet your hands and start forming together balls from the mixture to make the meatballs.
Add the oil to a frying pan and bring to medium heat. Carefully add the meatballs and cook them until they're brown on the outside.
Add the chopped tomatoes and leave to simmer for 15 minutes, stirring once or twice in-between. Season with extra salt and pepper if needed.
Add the spinach to the meatballs and leave to wilt while you drain the konjac tagliatelle. Cook according to the instructions on the packaging. Once done, mix the spinach into the sauce and serve with the pasta.
