Serves 4

Meatball ingredients

  • 1 packet of MAGGI Onion Soup Mix
  • 200g Meadow Mushrooms, chopped up (eg portabello, white button)
  • 400g mince
  • 1 carrot
  • 4 tbsp parsley (optional)
  • ¾ tsp oregano (optional)
  • ½ tsp thyme (optional)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • Butter or oil for frying

Sauce ingredients

  • 1 tin of tomatoes (any flavour – I like basil or Italian tomatoes)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 onion, diced
  • Butter or oil for frying
  • Spaghetti to serve


  1. Grate the carrot and chop up the herbs and mushrooms.
  2. Mix all meatball ingredients (except the butter/oil) together in a bowl. Roll the meatball mixture into as many meatballs as you like. 
  3. Heat the butter/oil in a frying pan and fry the meatballs until brown on the outside.
  4. While the meatballs are cooking, make the sauce. In another frying pan, heat the butter/oil and cook the diced onion and garlic together until soft. Then add the tin of tomatoes. Add in the meatballs and simmer until the meatballs are cooked through.
  5. Serve over cooked spaghetti.
