Boerewors meatballs, bacon and baked beans make a wonderfully hearty pasta that is surprisingly cheap to make.


  • 500 g spaghetti 
  • 750 g Grabouw boerewors 
  • 1 T oil 
  • 100 g diced wood-smoked bacon 
  • 1 t Woolworths hot seasoning (optional) 
  • 400 g baked beans 
  • 410 g peeled and diced tomatoes 
  • 60 g mild Cheddar, grated 

Cooking Instructions

1. Cook the pasta according to package instructions. Drain, reserving 2 cups of the cooking water, and set aside.
2. Remove the meat from the boerewors casing and roll into small balls. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and fry the meatballs and bacon until well browned. Add the seasoning and sauté for a further minute.
3. Add the baked beans, tomatoes and reserved pasta water, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve piled on the spaghetti and sprinkle with the cheese.
Cook’s note: Omit the spaghetti and top with mash for a meatball cottage pie.
