Meatballs in Puttanesca Sauce

by Lisa K. on Mon, August 21, 2017

Meatballs are generally a crowd pleaser and very simple to make. I mixed it with some fresh sausage meat to keep it juicy and bouncy, plus a jar of Mashad’s Putanesca Sauce to bind it all together. Delish! You can of course use your favourite pasta sauce with this and simply add some anchovies and olives to it.

Balls you wanna stuff in your mouth!

To ensure the meatballs are cooked through, drizzle a little water into the pan during searing and cover it with a lid. The steam will cook the meatballs evenly.

The fresh sausage gives the meatball and bouncy texture and retains the meaty juices. And some minced lamb too to give it a little umph!
