Start Cooking

Prepare the Meatballs

  1. Combine ground meat with eggs, garlic, bread, and seasonings. Mix well.

  2. Heat oil for deep-frying in a small saucepan. Use wet hands to form meat mixture into balls.

  3. Gently place in hot oil and fry 2–3 minutes, until golden. Remove and drain on paper towels.

Prepare the Nests

  1. In a medium bowl, combine tomato, tomato sauce, garlic, sugar, and seasonings. Remove ¼ cup of mixture and set aside. Mix remaining sauce with spaghetti.

  2. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease 12 muffin cups and arrange the spaghetti around the walls of each muffin cup to form a nest.

  3. Place a meatball in the center of each muffin cup. Pour on a bit of the reserved tomato mixture. Bake for 20 minutes.

Note:

Don’t remove the nests from the muffin tin until they’re completely cool.

    Do you recommend eating these hot (reheated) or at room temp?

    I think they would be good either way. They are probably better hot and straight from the oven. If you are serving them as a buffet I am sure they are still good at room temperature.

    Will the nests keep their shape when reheated?
