An old favourite tonight - meatballs with hidden veg in a broccoli & tomato sauce with pasta and steamed peas. We need a veggie boost, we've all got colds!

500g lean mince
1 finely grated zucchini
1 finely grated carrot
1 slice of bread blitzed into breadcrumbs (I used wholemeal country grain because that's what I had)
Half a jar of pasata (those big 700g jars)
A tin of 'no added salt' crushed tomatoes
Some herbs from the garden, whatever I have at the time like parsley oregano etc or just use some dried mixed herbs
Whatever veg you want to add, cut up small - I used broccoli because I need to use it up
That's all it is. Cook the meatballs until a bit more than half cooked then add the sauce and simmer until the sauce thickens a bit and meatballs are cooked through.
Sometimes I serve with mashed potato rather than pasta. DD loves peas so I sometimes add them to the sauce as well, but tonight I served them on the side.
Its a good wintery dinner and DD always demolishes it!

This was what DS had last night... Only ate 2 pieces of the sausage but all the veg got eaten (potato & pumpkin with Parmesan cheese on top & steamed cauliflower & peas)
Tonight is meatballs & pasta, I've got pumpkin, zucchini, mushroom, carrot grated up in the meatballs :-) DS loved them!

I made chicken & mushroom pot pies with homemade chips and steamed greens. DD ate the pastry, a little of the filling, all the chips ( of course!) and most of the greens.
This is a pic of mine but hers was pretty much the same.

I got the recipe from taste website.
It's basically just milk flour eggs and oil. I tried it without the oil/butter in the bottom but they didn't rise as much. I think the trick must be the hot oil or butter that makes them puff up.
I put sausages in raw and they cooked together.
