Mini Meatball Fedilini

Enjoyed by Peter

This is a clever way with meat balls. As small individual portions it makes an elegant Italian starter. The smaller-sized meatballs and thin spaghetti also make a fun and wholesome dish for children. Or piled high on a big platter it makes a great family dish to share around the table.

I’ve posted another recipe for fish taco using salmon. This versions has a developed sauce which is rather like a Mexican tartar sauce. I’ve also added street-style corn on the cob which is a perfect accompaniment.
