Pork Meatballs in Roasted Vegetable Sauce

1/2 syn on EE & red, 7 syns on green

1 courgette, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 red pepper, de-seeded & cut into bite-sized pieces
2 medium onions, peeled & chopped
2 garlic cloves, peeled and halved
low calorie cooking spray
salt & pepper
460g pack extra lean pork mince
2 tsp dried thyme
400g can chopped tomatoes
57g/2oz tomato puree
1tsp artificial sweetener
340g/12oz broccoli, cut into florets, to serve

1. Preheat the oven to 200c/gas mark 6. Place the chopped courgette, pepper and onions into a roasting tray with the garlic cloves. Spray the vegetables all over with low calorie cooking spray and season. Roast for 30 mins, turning occasionally.
2. Meanwhile, mix the pork mince with the dried thyme and season to taste. Shape into 24 meatballs and chill in the fridge while the vegetables roast.
3. Place the roasted vegetables in a liquidiser with the canned tomatoes, tomato puree, sweetener and 142ml/5fl oz water. Blitz until smooth and check the seasoning.
4. Pour the sauce back into the roasting tray and drop in the meatballs - there's no need to stir them at this point. Place back in the oven and cook for 20 minutes.
5. Meanwhile, cook the broccoli in lightly salted boiling water for 5-6 minutes, then drain. Stir the pork meatballs into the sauce and serve with the cooked broccoli.
