Pork Meatballs in a Rich Tomato Sauce

Serves 4

A delicious rich tomato sauce with homemade pork meatballs; perfect for a family supper. Try using our organic pork mince to create the meatballs, this pork mince has been carefully created from our organic free range pork (click here to find out more information). This product is available to purchase online and can be delivered straight to your door.


2 tbsp olive oil

1 large onion, finely chopped

1 x 750g of pork mince

2 medium eggs, lightly beaten

75g fresh white breadcrumbs

75g Parmesan, grated

14g parsley, chopped

1 x 390g carton chopped tomatoes

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 tsp caster sugar

350g spaghetti


In a nonstick frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over a medium heat and cook the onion for 7-8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and mix with the pork mince, eggs, breadcrumbs, Parmesan and nearly all the parsley. Divide and shape into 40 balls. Place half on a tray and freeze for later use. Once frozen, you can put them in a freezer bag.

Heat the remaining oil in the pan and fry the meatballs over a medium-high heat for 6-7 minutes, turning regularly, until cooked through.

Add the tomatoes, garlic, sugar and 200ml of water to the pan. Bring to the boil, and simmer for 15 minutes, until thick. Add the meatballs for the last 5 minutes and season.Tip To give your sauce a kick, add a generous pinch of dried chilli flakes to the sauce before serving.

Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in a pan of lightly salted water following the pack instructions. Drain well.

Split the spaghetti between bowls, top with the meatballs and sauce. Garnish with the rest of the parsley.
