Meatballs with Pasta

I use Quorn 'Swedish-style' balls for this, but it would work equally well with non-vegetarian meat balls.


  • 300g pasta, penne works well

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 400g of meat balls or vegetarian 'meat' balls (about 20)

  • 1 chilli, finely chopped

  • 1 sweet pepper, cut into strips

  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes



  1. Put on a pan of water to boil for the pasta. Salt it well and add a little oil to stop it boiling over.

  2. Place the onion, meat balls and chilli in a frying pan and fry on a medium heat until the onion is soft.

  3. Add the pasta to the (hopefully) now boiling water. Start a timer for the length of time the pasta says it takes to cook.

  4. Add the sweet pepper and chopped tomatoes to the meat balls. Simmer until the pasta is done, stirring every couple of minutes to make sure it doesn't burn.

  5. Drain the pasta and serve everything with freshly milled black pepper over the top.

Serves 3.
