  1. Separate the sausages and gently squeeze the meat out of the skins and shape into 2cm balls. Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Add the sausage meatballs and fry for 5 minutes, stirring continuously until the meat is browned.
  2. Add the mixed herbs, chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, stock, and 3 tbsp of water. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes, or until the sauce develops a thicker consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. While the meatballs and sauce simmer, cook the spaghetti according to the packet instructions. To serve, simply spoon the cooked sauce over the drained spaghetti and top with the grated Parmesan.
