|2||Garlic cloves, finely crushed|
|¼ tsp||Freshly ground black pepper|
|¼ tsp||Smoked paprika|
|1 handful||Parsley, finely chopped|

- For the meatballs, mix together beef or lamb mince, garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, parsley, the zest of a lemon and the egg. Chill.
- For the tomato soup, heat olive oil and gently cook onion, garlic and ginger until fragrant and soft. Add passata, bayleaves and basil and simmer until hot.
- Remove herbs, season with sea salt, lemon zest and juice, leave to cool a bit then blitz until smooth.
- To serve, roll mince into small meatballs. Return soup to heat, add meatballs and simmer gently until cooked. Spoon into bowls of freshly cooked spaghetti and garnish with basil leaves and pepper.
