I normally make tomato and balsamic.

Brown the meatballs, add garlic, peppers (if you fancy them) and onions to pan and cook for a few minutes. Add tub of passata or tin of chopped toms, some salt and pepper and a very generous slug of balsamic (I am never shy when it comes to balsamic) and reduce. The meatballs will finish cooking in the sauce. If I have any fresh herbs, especially basil they go in too!

We had that last night with HEXA cheese and wholemeal pasta. Lush.

OR the other thing I'm dying to try is the creamy one on the Philly advert!
Swedish Meatballs in Creamy Philly Sauce with Tagliatelle That looks pretty easily adaptable. I might give it a go next week :D

I made chicken, bacon, garlic, red pepper and onion all fried until soft, stirred in Philly chilli flavour and chilli with taglietelle. I recon this would work with meatballs. It was yummy.

Update. I tried this one Philly Meatball Pasta tonight and it was really really lush. I used 100g Extra Light Philly between the two of so it was 1/2 HEXA. I used my own meatballs too rather than sausages :)

Really really yummy, for only 1/2 a syn!
