Marty in the Morning.

    Monday to Friday, 7 - 10am

    This week Marty Recommends...........

    Pat Coldricks much anticipated new album 'Cityjam' has just been released. Hailed as a classical guitarist and composer one thing that will strike you is that this is not what you were expecting.

    Unless you have been to one of Coldricks recent intimate concerts where only the discerning have had little tasters of this album, you will not have heard this piece, you will not have experienced the energy, edginess and pure electricity that exudes from this performance, you will not know the ethos of this performer, what he has been trying to tell us all along….. Until now.

    Nevens Recipes - Meatball pasta bake

    Meatball Pasta Bake with Spinach and Mozzarella

     Serves 4–6

    225g (8oz) lean minced beef

    225g (8oz) minced pork

    8 cream crackers, crushed into fine crumbs

    1 egg, lightly beaten

    1 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

    2 tbsp olive oil, extra for drizzling

    1 onion, finely chopped

    1 celery stick, finely chopped

    1 large garlic clove, crushed

    500ml (18fl oz) passata (Italian sieved tomatoes)

    2 tbsp tomato purée

    small handful of fresh basil leaves, extra to garnish

    350g (12oz) penne pasta

    knob of butter

    225g (8oz) baby spinach leaves

    100g (4oz) mozzarella, cut into cubes

    25g (1oz) freshly grated Parmesan

    sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

    lightly dressed mixed salad, to serve

     

    Place the minced beef and pork in a bowl with the crushed cream crackers, egg and parsley.

    Season with salt and pepper and using your hands, give everything a good mix. Using slightly

    wetted hands, make about 20 even-sized balls. Arrange on a flat baking sheet, drizzle over a

    little olive oil to lightly coat and chill for 1 hour to firm up if time allows.

    Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan over a medium heat and sauté the onion and celery for about 5 minutes, until lightly golden. Add in the garlic and cook for 1 minute more, stirring. Add the passata and tomato purée and season to taste. Simmer gently for 8–10 minutes, until the sauce has nicely reduced and thickened. Stir in the basil leaves and remove from the heat.

     

    Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F/gas mark 6). Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil.Plunge the penne into the boiling salted water and simmer for 6–8 minutes, until almost tender but not quite cooked through. Drain the penne well and return to the pan.

    Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a deep-sided frying pan over a medium heat and sauté the meatballs for 6–8 minutes, until almost cooked through and nicely browned.

     

    Heat the butter in a separate pan. Add one fistful of spinach at a time, adding another as one

    wilts down. Cook for 1 minute, then tip into a colander to drain. Season to taste.

    Stir the tomato sauce into the drained penne to coat and then transfer to a 30cm x 20cm (12in

    x 8in) 5cm (2in) deep ovenproof baking dish. Nestle in small mounds of spinach and arrange

    the meatballs on top. Scatter over the mozzarella and Parmesan. Place in the oven and bake for 15–20 minutes, until bubbling.

    To serve, put the pasta bake straight on the table garnished with the basil leaves. Have a

    separate big bowl of salad and allow everyone to help themselves.
