This came about because I wanted to make something the children would enjoy as we were going out for dinner. It became an instant hit and is now requested whenever I say we are going out. It is so quick and easy that it really is a cheat’s meal that goes down so well.
A pack of meatballs
Squeeze of tomato sauce
Tip the meatballs into an oven proof dish, cover with the soup and add a squeeze of tomato sauce. Stir and add to a pre-heated oven for 25 mins.
Check a couple of times and just turn the meatballs over.
Serve with pasta and bright vibrant peas or sweetcorn; you have an instant hit. If using spaghetti run it through the meatballs or tip them into the pan and coat generously with the sauce.
Try it out on your little ones and let me know what they think.
