The pasta is fried with a beaten egg, some grated cheese, and a little salt – the result is a wonderful golden delight, often made with fine spaghetti. The remaining inspiration is the good old omelette, which combine with the true origins of a frittata – first fried, but not flipped, before placing in the oven until totally golden – I have drizzled mine with some wonderful extra virgin olive oil to be sure of this.

Try it with spinach instead of zucchini next time (make sure you drain all the water out of the spinach, and that it’s chopped well using kitchen scissors).

I have always found the concept of meatballs in a rich tomato sauce to be a comforting prospect for lifting the spirits, as well as a ‘looking forward to’ label attached to a pleasurable sit-down meal – to share with either friends or family, or both. I suppose the added bonus of chewing into the tender balls, sucking in the spaghetti, and inevitably splattering the amazing sauce – all add to the pleasure of eating such a meal.
