Ingredients

  • 400g turkey breast mince
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 30g parmesan, finely grated, plus extra to serve
  • ground to make ¼ tsp black peppercorns
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 400g tin plum tomatoes
  • a few leaves basil
  • 4 submarine rolls, halved and toasted
  • to serve salad dressed with balsamic vinegar

Method

  • STEP 1

    Tip the mince, onion, parmesan, ground pepper and a big pinch of salt into a bowl and mash with your hands until combined. Roll into 16 even-sized balls.

  • STEP 2

    Heat 1 tbsp of the olive oil in a frying pan and fry the meatballs until golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to scoop out onto a plate.

  • STEP 3

    Add the remaining tbsp of oil to the frying pan and fry the garlic for 1 minute, then add the chilli flakes and tomato purée, and cook for a further minute. Tip in the tomatoes and 150ml of water, and simmer for 15 minutes. Use a hand blender to whizz the sauce until smooth, then add the meatballs back in. Simmer gently for 10 minutes, flipping the meatballs halfway.

  • STEP 4

    Spoon the meatballs onto 4 sub bases, then spoon over the sauce. Add a few basil leaves, grate over more parmesan, put on the lids and serve with a salad, if you like.
