    Yum, this was very nice. Thanks! Any reason why you couldnt start cooking the sauce with the meatballs steaming up top? Also, could you add a temperature in the first part of the sauce cooking, I just did it at 100 degrees. The sauce is delicious.

  • 8/10 Enjoyed this very much

    Submitted by PaulieW on 23. December 2015 - 17:36.

    8/10 Enjoyed this very much as sauce was really delicious. Did not add Passata as felt the sauce would be too runny. Added seasoning and put tomato paste in recipe.

    I also cooked the meatballs in my healthy fryer as I like the color of them more.

  • I'm confused, the total  cook

    Submitted by nazaz1 on 19. May 2015 - 23:18.

    I'm confused, the total  cook time says 40 minutes...but if the meatballs are cooked for 25 minutes, then the zucchini garlic  onion eggplant cooks for 20 minutes, and then the rest  of the ingredients cook for another 20 minutes...that's over an hour! Isn't that a long time for the meatballs to be sitting in the thermoserver?

  • Could this be cooked by

    Submitted by kwijibo_adl on 16. May 2015 - 11:50.

    Could this be cooked by prepping meatballs, then clean dish & cook sauce & meatballs at the same time? Remove sauce at end of cooking time & then continue cooking meatballs with water if needed?

    Hi, thanks for letting me know!  I have adjusted the recipe now.  I usually cook the zucchini etc at 70 deg for 20 mins... but 100 is fine too - it reduces down and intensifies the flavour!  Or just do it for 8-10 mins if I have hungry kids that can't wait!
