Spider Meatballs with Blood Sauce! #Hungry2Happy

I was very excited to be sent vouchers to purchase Richmond Mini Meatballs in return to come up with a recipe that could be quick, simple and something the kiddies will enjoy!

So I present to you my recipe for…….
Spider Meatballs with Blood Sauce
Ready in 30mins! yes THIRTY MINUTES! with only 10 simple steps.

You will need:
Richmond Meatballs Pack of 20
Dried Spaghetti orย Linguine
2 Tablespoons of Tomato Puree
1 Can of Chopped or Plum Tomatoes
1 Diced Onion
A Splash of Worcester Sauce
2 Table Spoons of Mixed Italian Herbs
Fresh Parsley

Equipment needed:ย 
A Baking Tray
Large Saucepan
Frying Pan
I decided to time myself whilst cooking this recipe just to prove it can be done under 30mins ๐Ÿ™‚

SO Ready, Steady…………COOK!…….

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees

1. Put a saucepan of water on to boil for the pasta to be added later

2. Put the Meatballs on a baking tray and pop in the preheated oven

3.Spray some Frylight onto your frying pan ( I use Frylight as part of my Slimming World plan, but you can use a drizzle of Vegetable Oil or Olive Oil instead)

4. Add the Tomato Puree first and cook it for a few seconds, giving it a whirl in the pan on its own ๐Ÿ™‚ (this helps release the flavour)

5. Add in the diced onion & stir……then add in the dried herbs and stir

6. Add in the tinned tomatoes,ย Worcesterย sauce and you can even sneakย 
in a grated carrot teehee…….and stir

If Sauce is a little dry you can add a little water.
Leave this on a low heat to simmer whilst you prepare the Spiders!

The above should all take a max of 10 minutes!
7. When the Richmond Mini Meatballs are golden brown, take them out of the oven!

and begin the Spiders!
This is a great time to get the kids involved
8. First you need to make the legs, so take one piece of ย Spaghetti and snap in half. You need to do this twice per spider.
9. Grab a Richmond Mini Meatball and thread the spaghetti pieces through the middle at different angles.ย 

This should create 4 legs either side of the spiders head, resulting in 8 legs ๐Ÿ™‚ yippee!

Just be careful they don’t start crawling away!

10. Pop the spiders in to the pan of boiling water, and leave to boil on a high heat for about 5mins, when spaghetti is cooked remove and drain.


All ready in actually 25mins, I even impressed myself there!

Now Serve the Richmond Mini Meatball Spiders on top of the Blood Sauce and enjoy

They were a huge hit with my Niece and Nephew!
This would be fab to serve at Halloween!
