I love pasta. Be it straight up with some good butter, salt and other herbs, a nice alfredo sauce or whatever, I simply love pasta. This dish was something I came up with when making a quick dinner for my girlfriend and I. I say quick, and it is, really. The only really time-consuming task is making the meatballs. Here’s what you’ll need:
You’ll need

  • Pasta (I usually use penne, fusilli, gnocchi or some other kind of short pasta for this, but anything goes, really)
  • Tinned, chopped tomatoes
  • Meatballs

For the meatballs, see the recipe for meatballs. For this dish, I usually go beyond the basic recipe, adding corn, pepper and an egg or two and some plain flour. Boil the pasta, adding salt to the water. (I also like adding dried or fresh basil, which gives off a slight fragrance and taste.) Drain the pasta, and add chopped tomatoes, as much as you’d like. I usually use tomatoes chopped together with basil and oregano, which is very nice with this dish. Add the meatballs, and mix everything together. Deglace the frying pan with beer, and drain it onto the pasta and meatballs.
