Spaghetti and Meatballs

For the meatballs:
1lb ground beef or (1/2lb ground beef and 1/2 pound pork).
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1large onions, minced
1 egg, beaten
1 knorr cube
A pinch of salt

For the marinara:
1lb fresh tomatoes
Fresh peppers (to taste)
1 and 1/2 bulbs onions
1 tin tomato paste
5 large carrots (cut into cubes)
1 large green pepper (cut into cubes)
Knorr & Salt to taste
Curry
Vegetable Oil

Directions:
Combine all the meatball ingredients in a large bowl and roll into 12-15 balls. Bake or fry the meatballs till they're brown and well done. I prefer the healthier choice of baking.

Blend the tomatoes, pepper and 1 onions. Add vegetable oil to a large saucepan and heat, chop up the remaining 1/2 onions and sauté till translucent. Add the blended ingredients to the oil and boil till the tomato has dried all its water. Add the tin tomato paste and cook anoda 10-15mins. Add curry, knorr and salt to your taste. Add 2 cups of water and let it simmer anoda 5-10mins. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Add the meatballs and simmer for 10mins. Add the chopped carrots and simmer for 3mins and then add the green pepper. Turn off the heat almost immediately so you don't over cook the vegetables. I like them crunchy. Serve over spaghetti and ENJOY!!!
