Tip

My kids love this dish so I will add some Carrot, zuchinni, extra kale, spinach or mushrooms to the sauce. I add veggies just after sauteing the onions and blitz for 30sec Sp6. This allows me to hide a few extra vegetable in the sauce from master fussy!

 

We call them "Hulk Balls" as sometimes the kale will make them very green!

    The kids loved these. I found them quite salty so I would reduce the salt next time, but will make them again for sure.
