Ingredients

Chicken breast mince, raw

400 g

Onion(s)

1 medium, finely chopped

Garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

Calorie controlled cooking spray

5 spray(s)

Tinned Tomatoes

400 g, chopped

Passata

700 g

Tomato Purèe

1 tablespoons, level

Oregano, Dried

1 teaspoons, level

White pasta, dry

320 g, spaghetti

Basil, fresh

4 leaf/leaves, torn

Instructions

  1. Combine chicken mince, onion and garlic in a medium bowl. Season well with salt and pepper. Shape mixture into 16 meatballs (about 2 tablespoons each ball).
  2. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with low fat cooking spray. Place over medium-high heat. When pan is hot, add meatballs and cook until brown on each side, turning frequently for about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, passata, tomato puree and oregano. Season to taste with salt and pepper and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through and sauce has slightly reduced. While meatballs are cooking, boil pasta in a large saucepan of salted water for 8 minutes or until just tender. Drain well.
  3. Remove meatball mixture from heat and stir in basil leaves. Spoon over hot spaghetti and serve immediately.

Notes

Any leftover meatballs can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days, and are best reheated in a microwave. The meatballs are also suitable to freeze for up to 3 months.
