1 To make the bread crumbs. Cut some bread up into cubes and place on fry pan at low heat. turn over frequently and cook at low temperature until the bread is hard. Take out of pan and press down the bread cubes with heavy object to squash the bread and make it into crumbs.
2 To make the Spaghetti Meatballs sauce, heat the oil in a large pan and fry the onion until lightly cooked. Add the red peppers, egg plant and other veggies you desire. Add the garlic and stir over a medium heat for a few minutes. Add the cumin and chili and cook for 30 seconds more. Stir in the tomato puree, chopped tomatoes, white wine and seasoning, herbs and any other ingredients, then bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 30 minutes until rich and thick.
3 While the Spaghetti Meatballs sauce is simmering, prepare the meatballs. Put the breadcrumbs in a small bowl and add just enough milk to cover. Leave to soak. Meanwhile, fry the onion and garlic in one tablespoon of the oil for 5 minutes over a medium heat. Tip into a bowl and leave to cool. When cold, stir in the breadcrumbs, along with the mince, Parmesan, lemon zest and herbs. Season generously, then mix well.
4 Preheat a large fry pan and shape the mince mixture into medium meatballs. Heat the remaining oil in a saute pan and brown the meatballs on all sides for about 5 minutes. Pour the tomato sauce into a baking dish and place the meatballs on top. Cover loosely with foil and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and return to the oven for 10 minutes. Alternately cook in a large fry pan slowly.
