Meatballs in Creamy Sauce with Tagliatelle

Ingredients (4 servings)

  • 400 gr (14.1 oz) minced pork
  • 1 onion, grated, drained
  • 80 gr (2.8 oz) oil
  • 2 slices of toast, stale
  • 1 egg
  • salt, pepper & paprika
  • 400 gr (14.1 oz) mafaldines
Soak the bread in water for a little time and then squeeze with your hands to leave the water.
In a large bowl add the minced meat, the squeezed bread, egg, onion, 3 tablespoons from the oil, salt and freshly ground pepper.
Stir kneading all the ingredients until smooth and is becoming a fluffy. If it is too dry, add one or two tablespoons of water.
Put the mixture in the fridge for half an hour.
We take a small amount of meat mixture and mold balls of medium size. Press them well on molding, so they will not disperse in frying.
When you are done with the meat, add the remaining oil in the pan to burn and fry until golden.
Remove the meatballs to a plate and set aside, you will need them later.

Cream

  • 150 gr (5.3 oz) homemade broth of chicken or water
  • 150 gr (5.3 oz) cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp dill, chopped
In the same pan, add the chicken broth, cream cheese and dill. Bring to a boil, stirring from time to time "scratching" with a wooden spatula the base of the pan (deglazing).
After 4'-5', add the meatballs and let them boil for 10 minutes in the cream.
Observe the cream to remain fluid, not too thick. Dilute accordingly with broth or water.
At the same time boil the mafaldines al dente or as we like, in plenty of water with a teaspoon of salt.
Drain and turn them in the pot which boiled.
Add some of the white sauce and stir.
Serve in every dish adding extra cream and meatballs.
Sprinkle -optional- with paprika.
