This unexpected spaghetti and meatballs dish is what you should be eating right now

Universally acknowledged as a classic, the combination of spaghetti and meatballs holds as important a role in grandmothers’ cooking repertoires as it does in those of first-year uni students. Beyond its comforting, fulfilling nature, the beauty of this meal really lies in its versatility. And as if to prove this point, the culinary experts at The Candy Shop have created their own, unique take on the dish.

Combining the basic premise of pasta and meat with the flair we’ve come to expect from this eatery, the Newmarket hotspot has exceeded expectations with its Baa Baa Ball Spaghetti. Combining soft, freshly-made egg spaghetti with lamb meatballs, handcrafted ricotta, tomato, basil pesto and the savoury-sweet flavour of gochujang ragout, this might not be our grandma’s dish, but it’s certainly taken that one’s place as our new favourite.
