An Italian classic of meatballs made half-and-half with our grass-fed beef and free-range pork in a rich tomato sauce. The key to this sauce's authenticity is the clean recipe and the perfect balance of tomato and authentic herbs. Cooked in a tangy, Italian-style tomato sauce, the toasted ciabatta breadcrumbs ensure the meat is tender, soft, plump, and juicy, while a touch of rosemary brings the aromatic flavour for a rich and enjoyable meal.

All our saucepan ready™ range can be cooked at home in 5 minutes. Be sure to follow our Executive Development Chef Jeff's expert meal tips for getting the most out of this rustic Italian meatballs with the downloadable PDF below.
