Instructions

  1. Start preparing the meatballs. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix them well using your hand. Make small balls and place them on a plate.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large pan and fry meatballs in it over medium low heat. When they are almost done after about 10 minutes, you can pour the tomatoes over them. Add in garlic, red pepper flakes and salt. Let it simmer.
  3. Meanwhile bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the pasta. Cook according to the package directions and drain.
  4. When the sauce gets thicker after about 10 minutes of simmering, add in the cooked pasta and stir well.
  5. Preheat oven to 370F.
  6. Pour half of the meatballs and pasta into a baking dish, top with half of the grated mozzarella and pour the rest of the meatballs and pasta. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and top with the other half of the cheese and bake until the cheese melts. Serve immediately.
