- STEP 1
Start by mixing all the sauce ingredients in a large sauce pan at least 5ltrs in size.Heat on a gentle heat stirring occasionally
- STEP 2
Finely chop all the vegetables (the finer the better) place in a large mixing bowl together with all the herbs, garlic and the mince, add the beaten egg and salt and pepper. Get your hands in and give it a good mix, not to heavy handed mind or your meatballs will become heavy and too compact.
- STEP 3
Take a small handful of the mixture and roll into a ball in the palm of your hands (about the size of a golf ball) and gently place in the sauce, continue until all meatballs are made.
- STEP 4
Turn up the heat slightly to a gentle simmer.At this stage DO NOT stir the meatballs or you will risk breaking them up, put the lid on and simmer for 20 mins.
- STEP 5
Give the meatballs a gentle stir,reduce heat and cook on a very low heat for at least 2 hours. Serve with spaghetti or linguini and freshly grated parmesan cheese
