Intwood Farm Meatballs in Italian Sauce

Top view of delicious meatballs with tomato sauce and fresh basil


  1. Choose a pan large enough to take the meatballs in a single layer.
  2. Gently fry the onion and garlic in the oil until softening but not coloured.
  3. Add to the pan the tomatoes, water, seasoning, dried oregano and tomato puree.
  4. Bring to the boil whilst stirring, then reduce to a simmer and place on the lid.  Stir occasionally for 20 minutes until the onions are really soft.
  5. Add the milk (it will look curdled for a while but don’t panic all will be well).  At this point taste the sauce adding a little sugar to ‘round off’ the flavour.
