1 large tin of chopped tomatoes
small amount of garlic
1 tablespoon of tomato paste

simmer ingredients for 45 minutes
after 15 minutes, put meatballs in and cook for 15mins

serve with spaghetti and grated parmesan cheese on top, and a glass of red wine!

bon appetito


  1. tip: make a double batch of meatballs and freeze. Then just make your sauce when u need it, microwave the frozen balls and chuck em into the sauce wholus bollus

  2. tip #2: use beef instead of pork, keep other ingredients the same. made it tonite, tastes pretty damn good if I do say so meself.

    very easy and highly recommended for people that have never made meatballs (there are thousands of variants, but start with this), or those people who aren't confident cooks. You will surprise yourself, and those around you :)
