Spaghetti & Meatballs | BLW

Baby Led Weaning

Spaghetti and meatballs is a classic family meal so this is a great one for feeding the whole family.

Amber really enjoyed trying the meatballs but wasn’t so keen on the feel of spaghetti in her hands so we had to help her a bit with this.

Amber only had a little of the sauce, as she’s not at the stage yet where she can use her fork properly, so the sauce just makes it harder for her to pick up with her hands. However, as it’s a family dish, Dan and I were able to enjoy the sauce with ours.


12 lean beef meatballs
100g dried spaghetti
2 tins of chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp Worchester sauce
1 garlic clove finely chopped
1 onion finely chopped
2 tbsp tomato puree
pinch of coriander
canderel sweetener


Cook the spaghetti in a pan of boiling water.
Add meatballs to a large pan and fry in a drop of oil with the onions and garlic.
Put the hob to a medium heat and add the Worchester sauce and chopped tomatoes.
Add the tomato puree and coriander. Add sweetener to taste.
Drain spaghetti and serve.

We served Ambers spaghetti with two meatballs, a small spoon of sauce, some grated cheese, chopped baby tomato and chopped mushroom. These could have been added to the sauce, but I wanted Amber to try each individual ingredient.

We hope you and your little ones enjoy this recipe, if you do decide to try this one out, remember to tag us on instagram @mama_and_baby_amber and @meet_the_crockers 🙂
