I literally HATE the concept of cheat meals, I feel as though it demonises certain foods when in reality, eating everything in moderation is perfectly healthy. Some days you just want a big bowl of something comforting, and that’s totally okay. You don’t have to feel guilty for it. Soooo if you’re in need of comfort food this Tuesday eve, I got youuuuu - see below my recipe for cheesy stuffed meatballs 😍🍝
Add mince of your choice (I used 5% lean beef mince) to a bowl along with salt, pepper, basic and a whisked egg (does also work with a touch of oil if you’re vegan). Mix together with hands.
Once combined form into a flat ball, place a chunk of mozzarella (or dairy free cheese) in the centre and roll until round and the cheese is covered. Do this for all the mince.
Fry off until golden then let them sit to get rid of excess oil.
Meanwhile, put the pasta on and add garlic and red onion to a pan to brown off. Add vegetables of your choice - I used courgette and mushrooms, before adding several chopped tomatoes, water, tomato purée and salt, pepper and basil. Let this simmer.
Right before serving add the meatballs again for the last few minutes. Enjoy the perfect bowl of nutrious, filling, healthy comfort food 🍝🍝 Happy Tuesday 💜
