This recipe reminds me of the Sunday night teas that Mum used to make. They were always something quick and easy to make that could be eaten with a fork while watching TV, that new fangled miracle that came into our lives after the 1956 Melbourne Olympic games.
Another recipe from the Tiger Oven Bag collection. The marinade sounds tasty and except for crushing the garlic not much work. Like most of the oven bag recipes I don’t think the bag is essential, cooking it in a little oil in a dish would work just as well.
Long before packets of cheese twists appeared on our supermarket shelves this recipe was printed in the New Idea. Making them might take a bit more effort than just putting the packet in your trolley, but they have a stronger cheese flavor and because you make more they work out a lot cheaper.
This recipe is probably how we really think of meatballs, Italian style, served with pasta. I’m not sure Mum would have put the olives in as she and Dad didn’t like them, but I think they are the ingredient that makes the Italian difference.
Meatballs must have been one of Mum’s favourite meals as I’ve found lots of recipes for them in her collection. This one must have been a later one as it uses a bottle of pasta sauce and fettucine, ingredients that weren’t around when she was cooking for us as children.
