Slimming World Pork Meatballs With Fresh Tomato Sauce Recipe
These Slimming World Pork Meatballs With Fresh Tomato Sauce is like how the Italians make it, however, these are healthier!!! If you like meatballs and pasta, you have to check this recipe out.
Put the pork mince into a bowl, add the dried oregano or any other herbs and or flavours of your choosing. This is where you can be a little experimental.
Mix the mince and herbs together until it is all combined.
Once the pork meatball mixture is ready, take a spoonful of the mixture and put it into your hand. Roll the mixture around in your hands to make your meatball shape and size, the repeat until the mixture is all used up.
If you don't chop up and freeze your onions, peppers etc, this is the time where you need to cut them all up.
Fill a pan with water and put on a low heat, while you are cooking the pork meatballs and making the sauce.
Put the meatballs into a large deep frying pan, you won't need to add any Frylight as the meatballs will already contain some. Cook on one side until golden, then turn them over and repeat.
Once the meatballs have been cooking on a couple of sides, take them out and leave them while we make the sauce.
Empty the frying pan, make sure there is not fat left from the meatballs. Spray a couple of squirts of FryLight into the frying pan and add the onions, leek and peppers and cook until ready. Once they are cooked, add the 2 tins of tomatoes. If you used whole tomatoes you will need to crush them to that they make a sauce. If you use chopped tomatoes, then this should already be done. You may want to add some herbs here, do so, but only a t spoon. Season with salt and pepper.
Now that the sauce is near enough made, turn to a medium heat, add the pork meatballs and leave to cook for 20 - 25 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked all the way through.
I usually time it by putting the pasta into a pan of medium water and leaving that to cook, again around 20 - 25 minutes. Once the pasta is cooked, the meatballs are normally cooked, but do check.
