Sauce:

1. Heat a drizzle of oil in a small saucepan, over a medium heat. Add garlic and cook until soft and fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Add oregano, crushed tomatoes and tomato paste and bring to a simmer for 15 minutes, or until sauce has thickened. Set aside and keep warm.

3. Serve meatballs over cooked spaghetti. Garnish with parmesan and basil leaves.
