  • 2 Tins of Chopped Tomatoes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried herbs
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • 500 g lean pork mince
  • 1 bunch sage
  • The zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice of bread
  • 1 small onion
  • Dried pasta according to appetite
  1. Place the tinned tomatoes, dried herbs, black pepper and garlic granules in a pan to simmer while you make the meatballs. Put the pasta in a pan and boil the kettle ready.
  2. Tear the sage. Roughly tear the bread and chop the onion. Zest the lemon. Add these, along with the egg and the mince to your food processor, and blend until it forms a homogeneous dough.
  3. Now take walnut-sized chunks of dough and form them into balls, and pop them straight in the sauce.
  4. Now boil your pasta. When the pasta is done the meatballs should be too - though remember to check they're done all the way through.
