Spaghetti “meats” the sandwich: The coolest sandwich ever!

As tasty as spaghetti and meatballs are, the chaotic way they spread all over the plate can be a real horror for true sticklers for order. But as the following recipe proves, it's possible to serve this dish in a much neater way with nice orderly layers.

You'll need:

  • 10 fl oz tomato sauce
  • 9 oz mozzarella, grated

For the meatballs:

  • 1⅔ lbs ground meat
  • 1 tbsp paprika 
  • 2 tbsp majoram
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 5 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • salt, pepper

For the pasta:

  • 3 eggs
  • 5⅓ oz grated parmesan
  • 17½ oz cooked spaghetti

Here's how:

  1. First prepare the meatballs: knead all the ingredients for this together in a bowl. Form all of the mixture into small meatballs and fry these in a pan until all sides are evenly cooked. 
  2. Next prepare the spaghetti: beat three eggs together and stir in the parmesan. Pour this mixture over the cooked spaghetti and mix everything together well. 
  3. Spread half of the spaghetti over the base of a circular baking pan. Add the meatballs on top, pour the tomato sauce over them and sprinkle on the mozzarella. Last but not least, use the rest of the spaghetti for the final layer on top.
  4. Bake your Spaghetti & Meatball Sandwich in a convection oven at 360°F for 15 minutes. Once it's done, all you need to do is remove the baking pan and this practical culinary masterpiece is ready for serving.

The story goes that the sandwich was invented in the 18th century by the Earl of Sandwich because he wanted something to eat while he was playing cards — he probably never dreamt that a variation on his humble invention like this would exist one day!
