Home Made Meatballs And Sauce

Published Tuesday, 14 February, 2012 by Avril

Approx 16 meatballs.Simple, tasty and cheap.



  • Meatballs :
  • 400g mince
  • 1 egg
  • 250 breadcrumbs.
  • Garlic, chilli, rosemary, basil, parsley (basically any herbs or spices you like)
  • 100g Parmesan (any grated cheese)
  • Sauce
  • 4 strips of bacon
  • 1 onion
  • 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • More garlic! (I love garlic :P)



Put all ingredients in a bowl.

Using your hands, mix all ingredients together.

Pull off some of the mince and roll into a ball in your hands (can be any size!)

Fry these in a pan, but only brown them, (don't burn them!) as they will cook through in the sauce.


Chop up the bacon and onion and fry them in a pan.

Add the tin of tomatoes, puree and garlic (or any herbs you like.)

Now transfer your meatballs into the sauce and simmer on a medium heat for approx 15 mins.

Whilst that is simmering, cook your spaghetti or pasta, and serve.
