This Italian pasta dish with meatballs and lots of mozzarella is ultimate enjoyment!
Start with the meatballs first. Mix all ingredients together and make small balls. Fry these all over in a frying pan with a little oil or butter. Meanwhile, finely chop the onion and garlic and sauté in another large pan. Add the tomato puree and fry briefly with the onion. Add the diced tomatoes and crumble in the beef stock cube and season with the Italian herbs, fresh basil, pepper and salt.
Let the mixture simmer for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a pan of water. Heat the oven to 200 degrees. Drain and toss the pasta through the tomato sauce. Finally, add the meatballs to the pasta with sauce. Then divide half over a large oven dish and place half of the mozzarella in slices on top. Spoon the rest of the pasta on top and divide the last slices of mozzarella over it and the Parmesan cheese. Bake the ziti al forno in the oven for 30 minutes. Garnish with some fresh basil.
