Step 01

Add all meatball ingredients (leaving out the oil) into a bowl, mix by hand until well combined (the more you mix the firmer the meatballs will be after cooking)

Step 02

Lightly oil your hands and roll 15-18 equal size meatballs.

Step 03

Heat the oil in our 32cm frying pan over a medium heat. Add the meatballs to the pan, making sure they each have their own space.

Step 04

Cook the meatballs for approximately 1 1/2 minutes per side, turning at least 4 times. Use tongs to gently roll them over. Cook for 10-15 minutes total. Remove from the pan.

Step 05

In the same pan heat the olive oil to a medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, carrots, celery. Stir to coat with the oil, reduce the heat to low and cook for 5 minutes until the vegetables are soft and cooked through.

Step 06

Increase the heat to medium high. Then add the passata, tomato paste and basil sprigs.

Step 07

Bring to a low simmer and place the meatballs in with the sauce and let cook uncovered until thickened, remove the basil stalks.

Season with salt and pepper and serve. Garnish with fresh basil and Parmesan.
