Need some inspiration for dinner tonight? Try my chicken meatballs in tomato and basil sauce for something different. The fresh basil, chicken meatballs and Italian style cooking really make this dinner a treat for the whole family.
We are big fans of spaghetti bolognese in my household, and my tribe would eat it every week if I let them. To mix it up a little, I make spaghetti and meatballs which they love just as much as good old fashioned spaghetti, but I I like to use chicken instead of beef sometimes too. I also make this tomato & basil sauce because it’s so yummy with the meatballs and the fresh basil from my vegetable patch just makes it go that extra mile. There really is nothing better than fresh herbs when it comes to cooking, and chopped fresh basil would have to be one of my favourite smells in the kitchen.
I have made this recipe in a thermomix and give credit to thermomg.squarespace.com for this recipe. In the pictures, I have used fresh breadcrumbs as I didn’t have any dried breadcrumbs at home, but if you have bread lying around that you know won’t be eaten after a few days, simply air dry it in the pantry, blitz it once dry, and you have yourself your very own homemade breadcrumbs.Print
