Ingredients

Instructions

  • In your Dutch Oven add your onion, garlic and olive oil and cook on a medium heat for a few minutes until your onions have gone soft.
  • Add your fresh tomatoes and courgettes, along with your seasonings (everything but the oregano and basil) and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  • Add your tinned tomatoes, bring to the boil and then simmer for 5 minutes.
  • While it is cooking make your meatballs. Using chicken (or turkey) mince place it in a mixing bowl with a small diced onion, tomato puree, teaspoon of garlic, mustard, basil and oregano. Mix well and make them into medium sized meatballs.
  • Place the meatballs into the Dutch Oven and cook in the oven for 40 minutes at 200c.

Notes

You can also use other mince but I love the flavour of chicken mince and it is much healthier than using pork mince.
 
When I buy tinned tomatoes I buy the plum variety in the 500g tins and it’s the perfect size for a casserole or stew.
