Meatballs

Heat some oil in a pan until medium hot and add the meatballs. Cook for a couple of minutes until brown and nicely caramelised then turn over and repeat.

Next add a jar of passata, tin of chopped tomatoes, garlic, dried Italian herbs and some fresh oregano from the garden (or whatever herbs you have to hand and fancy trying). Simmer for about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile boil some pasta until al denta, drain and add to the pan.

Continue to simmer for around 5 minutes and serve with some grated cheese and garlic bread.

This is a quick and easy meal and tastes great. Also a good one to get the kids to help cook.
