Herbed turkey meatballs
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 5
Turkey mince means these meatballs are low-fat, while the herbs and sauce ensure they're not lacking in flavour
- STEP 1
Tip the crumbs into a large bowl, then stir in the milk until the crumbs have absorbed the liquid. Add the mince, 1 tsp oregano and half the parsley, then season and mix with a fork. Use wet hands to shape into 30 meatballs.
- STEP 2
Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan, then brown the meatballs for 5 mins, turning to cook all over. Pour in the passata, sugar, remaining oregano and most of the remaining parsley. Stir well, then simmer for 8-10 mins until the meatballs are just cooked through.
- STEP 3
Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to pack instructions. Season the sauce, spoon the meatballs and sauce over the pasta, then sprinkle over any remaining parsley.
For a delicious lunch, make the meatballs, then brown as above and finish in a hot oven for 5-10 mins. Cool, then stuff into pitta bread with salad and chutney.
