How We Make It

To make our meatballs, we use a classic Italian blend of pork and veal mix, perked up with flavourings like lemon zest, parsley, thyme and garlic and onion. A bit of ricotta in the mixture keeps them soft and we use egg but no breadcrumbs to bind. After hand-rolling them, we roast them in the oven to keep things lean, then simmer them in a sweet, slow-cooked tomato sauce.

Ingredients

Meatballs (pork and veal mince, onion, ricotta cheese (milk, whey, acetic acid), free range eggs, parsley, garlic, salt, thyme, lemon zest, nutmeg, olive oil), tomato sauce (crushed tomatoes (tomato puree, citric acid), onion, garlic, basil, olive oil, salt, bay leaves)

Goes With

Serve with pasta, polenta or gnocchi, some basil or parsley and lashings of grated Parmesan. LOW CARB OPTION: Serve over a big pile of salad or spiralized zucchini. We like to toss our zucchini noodles in a frying pan with olive oil and salt - lots of recipes call for blanching them but we find that it makes them sad and soggy.
