Baked meatballs


  • 1 x 500g (17.6 oz) pack of lean beef mince
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 x 400g (14.1 oz) can of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 x 400g (14.1 oz) can of tomato soup
  • 1/4 pint of veg stock
  • 2 (50g) (1.8 oz) good handfuls of grated parmesan
  • 1 ball of mozzarella sliced
  • A handful of chopped parsley


  1. In a large mixing bowl put in the mince, onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Using your hands, work the ingredients together - the mince should be smooth and the mixture should hold together easily. Roll them into good sized meat balls and put to one side
  2. In an oven proof dish add the stock, soup and chopped tomatoes in and mix well with a spoon. Place your meatballs on top of the sauce so they are just sticking out of the top. Sprinkle with the cheese and lay the mozzarella on the top
  3. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes until golden and bubbling
  4. Sprinkle a handful of parsley and serve
