Meatballs in Tomato Sauce

These baked meatballs in a rich tomato sauce can be served however you like - on rice or pasta, or on a soft hotdog roll at your next picnic dinner.


Replace the beef meatballs with plant-based ready-made meatballs, or use dry veggie burger mix.  Follow the instructions on pack but instead of making patties, make meatballs and pre fry. Add all the gravy to the sauce, and not to your meatball mixture.

Family Friendly

Kids will enjoy mixing and rolling the mince meat into balls. Make a sample meatball and get your little one to try and match the size and shape.
