Get Prepping

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

In a large bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, mixed herbs, salt and water for the breacrumbs (see pantry for both amounts) and half the garlic.

Make your Meatballs

Add the beef mince to the breadcrumbs. Season with pepper and mix together with your hands.

Roll into even-sized balls, 5 per person, and pop them onto a large baking tray.

Bake the meatballs on the top shelf of your oven until browned on the outside and cooked through, 12-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. They're cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Once cooked, remove from the oven.

Cook the Tagliatelle

Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 0.5 tsp salt for the tagliatelle.

When boiling, add the tagliatelle to the water and bring back to the boil. Cook until tender, 3-4 mins.

Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pan. Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.

Simmer your Sauce

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.

Add the remaining garlic and stir-fry for 30 secs.

Stir in the passata, red wine jus paste, sugar and water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts). TIP: If your red wine jus paste has hardened, pop in a bowl of hot water for 1 min.

Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until thickened, 5-6 mins.

Combine and Stir

When everything's ready, add the meatballs and cooked tagliatelle to the sauce. Toss to coat, then simmer until piping hot, 1-2 mins. Add splash of water if you feel it needs it.

Stir through half the Parmigiano Reggiano until melted, then remove from the heat.

Finish and Serve

Share your ultimate tagliatelle and meatballs between your bowls. 

Sprinkle over the remaining Parmigiano Reggiano.

Serve the rocket alongside and drizzle over the balsamic glaze.
