    Hi, Just wanted to share with you my meatball recipe. My boyfriend offered to make me dinner and i told him the stuff that i could eat for free. I then calculated syns from his recipe and was dumbstruck to find outt hey were free as tasted so yummy.

    For extra yumminess if you have HE free sprinkle parmesan over the top!

    1 onion
    1 garlic
    250g pork mince
    250g beef mince
    oregano
    basil
    chilli flakes
    egg
    salt and pepper
    tin of chopped toms
    500g passatta
    beef oxo cube
    oregano
    basil
    spaghetti


    Using a hand blender blend onion and garlic until smooth. Combine garlic and anion in a bowl with mince, herbs, chilli, egg and salt and pepper. Mix with your
    hands to squidge together. Make into small meatballs (just smaller than a ping pong ball?) and place on a baking tray.
    PLace in fridge for atleast 30 mins, otherwise they will break up when cooking.
    Place in oven at 180 degrees for 15 mins turn halfway through.
    Whilst in oven start the sauce.
    Place 1 tin of chopped tomatoes, 1 passata, oxo cube and herbs in a frying pan and simmer.
    Once meatballs are ready take out oven and place into sauce and continue to simmer for 15 mins (30 mins in total)
    Start spaghetti.
    When ready serve.
    All freezable and makes a great lunch to pull out the freezer

    I make meatballs (usually just beef mince) in tom sauce with spaghetti quite regularly. It's a brilliant, tasty free meal, isn't it?

    Just remember that the mince will need to be extra lean for the meatballs to be syn free

    I dont think I have ever seen extra lean pork mince in the shops

    You can always go into your local butchers and ask them to make you up a batch of lean pork mince.
