    4. Heat a large pan with a little olive oil, fry the meatballs gently until browned both sides (turning halfway through cooking).
    5. In a large, deep baking or roasting tray, gently stir the marinara ingredients together apart from the onions.
    6. Add the drained meatballs to the marinara and set aside.
    7. Gently fry the onions in the same pan/oil as the meatballs were cooked in previously until they start to soften.
    8. Now drain any excess oil from the onions and add them to the marinara.
    9. Place the roasting tray in the oven and cook the meatballs in marinara for 25-35mins.
    10. Drain cooked pasta of your choice. Serve the pasta topped with meatballs and marinara. Garnish with cheese.
