My children recently received some gorgeous pork mince in from the farmer who supplies their business with TRUE free-range pork and chickens. I adjusted a recipe from Save with Jamie to make these delicious meatballs. You can serve them over linguine, spaghetti or taglietelle or make vegetable “pasta” with a spiralizer. Either way it is filling, aromatic and tasty.
2x 500g packs of Funky Chickens free range pork mince
2 rounds of feta cheese
2 free range eggs
Mix together and shape into balls. Fry gently in a little olive or coconut oil until brown.
2 onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic crushed
4 carrots, grated
4 celery sticks, chopped
1 jar passata
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 teaspoon mixed herbs
Brown the onions and garlic gently, then add the other veg and herbs. Simmer until soft. Season with salt and pepper.
Once the meatballs are cooked, add them to the saucepan and then let them settle into the sauce for about 10 mins while you prepare your pasta or vegetable spirals.
Serve the meatballs on top of the pasta/spirals with a generous helping of grated parmesan.
If you do not eat pork, chicken or beef or lamb mince will work well too.
