Steps

1

For the sauce, put the onion and the celery into the food processor and blitz to a mush, tip into a large glass bowl. (Reserve 2 tbsp of the mixture for the meatballs).

2

Add the garlic oil and chili flakes and cook on MEDIUM MICROWAVE for 3 mins. Add the cans of tomatoes + ¾ can of water, sugar and salt and pepper. Stir well and cook on SIMMER MICROWAVE for 10 mins while you do the meatballs.

3

Put all the ingredients for the meatballs, including the reserved onion and celery mixture in a bowl and gently mix together with your hands. Don’t over mix or this will make the meatballs dense and heavy.

4

Take a generous heaped tsp of mixture and roll it into a ball between the palms of your hands.

5

Drop the meatballs gently into the hot sauce.

6

Place back into the microwave and cook on SIMMER MICROWAVE for 15 mins or until cooked through.

7

Serve over a bowl of spaghetti and finish with a good grating of Parmesan cheese and torn basil leaves.
