Ingredients

This recipe include 1 tsp of our PureSea Natural

500g of Minced Lamb
1 tsp of mixed dried herbs
1 tsp of dried garlic
1 tsp of onion powder or granules
1 tsp of smoked paprika

1 tsp Seaweed
Black pepper to season
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic, crushed Olive oil for frying

 

2 cans of chopped tomatoes
One finely chopped medium courgette
2 tsp of chopped fresh basil or dried basil

Method

Mix the meat, half chopped onion, 1 clove of crushed garlic and the dried garlic, onion powder, Hebridean seaweed, paprika, dried mixed herbs and black pepper. Using your hands, roll into 18 meatballs and place in the fridge, covered, to firm up for an hour.  Once firm, fry gently in a little olive oil to brown all over in a frying pan with a lid. Be careful not to break up the meatballs. Remove the browned meatballs whilst you prepare the sauce. Sauté the other half onion, courgette and 2 cloves of crushed garlic in the same frying pan then add 2 cans of chopped tomatoes and the basil. Stir and heat through for a minute to allow the flavours to combine. Add the meatballs back to the pan, into the sauce. Stir gently making sure the meatballs don’t get broken up but are covered in sauce.  Put the lid on and simmer gently for 20 min until the meat is cooked.  In the meantime, cook the linguine or spaghetti so that the pasta is ready when the meatballs are due to be finished cooking9. Arrange the pasta onto plates and top with meatballs and sauce. You can also add grated cheese at the table. Enjoy!
