Cheesy Meatballs

A Classic Italian Dish

Serves 6 People


  •  450g 5% lean beef mince
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano 
  • Salt & cracked pepper 
  • 2 tsp chilli paste 
  • 50g parmesan cheese, grated 
  • 100g bread crumbs (gluten free if required) 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 250ml skimmed milk 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • 600ml passata 
  • 200g mozzarella cheese, grated 


  1.  Start by preheating the oven to 200°C/400°F/ gas 6. 
  2. Add the beef, garlic, oregano, salt & pepper, chilli paste, parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, egg and milk to a large bowl and mix well to combine. 
  3. Roll the mixture into 15-20 balls. 
  4. Next, heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the meatballs for 3-4 minutes. All you’re doing for now is browning the outside, as they will continue to cook in the oven. 
  5. Add a few spoonfuls of passata to the bottom of an oven-proof casserole dish. Then, lay the meatballs in the dish. 
  6. Pour the rest of the sauce all over, top with mozzarella and sprinkle with a little extra oregano, salt & cracked pepper. 
  7. Cover with foil and cook for 30 minutes or until cheese has melted and sauce is bubbling. 
  8. Serve hot!
