Tip

I have also done this recipe replacing the prosciutto with bacon and it works equally well.  Also you can just use two tins of tomatoes instead of the passata, I added a tablespoon of tomato paste.

I just love doing meatballs in the Varoma as they stay so lovely and moist and you don’t have to stand there turning them in a fry pan, and they definitely won’t burn.

    Delicious sauce and yummy flavours in the meatballs, didn't mince the meat enough so was a little chewy. Might use actual mince next time instead tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Very nice meatballs & sauce.

    Very nice meatballs & sauce.  I used bacon instead off prosciutto which worked fine.   I used half a lemon rind, which was enough.  Kids polished it all, which is great tmrc_emoticons.) thank you

  • Fantastic! I somehow managed

    Fantastic! I somehow managed to cook this in a motel room in remote country Victoria. So wonderful to sit and relax in the room while a delish meal cooked away. 

    The meatballs were perfectly cooked with loads of flavour and held together well once cooked. Tasty sauce too. I used salami instead of prosciutto, dried oregano and Coles 'Pure' GF bread rolls as they were items I had with me. 

    This dish is going on the favs list for when we get home.
