Valentine's Day - Italian meatballs with heart pasta

Valentine's Day, also called All Hearts' Day and Valentine's Day, is celebrated on February 14, every year. It is a celebration of love and has long traditions in England. The day has been used to express love by giving flowers, candy and valentine cards. I have no special relationship with this day, but anyway, what is more romantic than Lady and the wanderer in the backyard, who shares a plate of pasta and meatballs. Since I found heart paste at Claras in Hokksund, the choice was easy. It had to be heart paste and not spaghetti for the meatballs.

Meat balls:

3 tablespoons ironing

2 egg

2 cloves garlic

1 ts oregano

1 ts basilikun

1/2 grated onion

1 handful of finely chopped parsley

600 g chop dough

1 bag grated parmesan

1 ts salt

Knead everything well, shape into round buns and brown with butter or oil in a frying pan.

Tomato sauce:

1 shredded onion

2 cloves finely chopped garlic

1 tablespoon dried basil

1 bay leaf

1.5 box chopped tomatoes, preferably Mutti

1 cinnamon bark

1 pinch of cayenne paper

Salt and pepper

Brown onion and garlic in butter. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook for a long time. Preferably 1 hour or more, if you have time. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package. Serve with parmesan and a tassel of parsley.

Happy Valentine's Day to all the romantics out there!
