Low-fat turkey meatballs, smothered in a delicious tomato and pepper sauce – all topped with fresh basil.  Another nutritional star of a dish – full of vitamin C, vitamin A and even 20% of your daily iron requirments all this in a quick and easy family-friendly dish.

It freezes well, so why not make a double batch and then you’ll have a zero-effort meal ready for another day – just add the right number of portions in your meal-planner tool to adjust your shopping list.

Instructions
  1. Add all the meatball ingredients into a ball and mix together. Form small balls about the size of a walnut to a large saucepan with the olive oil and fry gently over a medium heat until pale all over.
  2. Add the crushed garlic to the pan, along with the pepper and passatta, and cook until there are bubbles throughout the pan and the meatballs a cooked through.
  3. Serve with your favourite gluten-free pasta and top with the basil leaves.

Recipe Notes

I find gluten-free pasta keeps it's shape and texture best straight after cooking, it tends to disintegrate in a pasta bake.
