Meatballs in Tomato Sauce
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
400 g beef mince
1 clove crushed garlic
1 cup grated Parmesan

⅓ cup milk
1 tbsp olive oil
750 ml bottle of tomato pasta sauce
1 cup beef stock
500 g pasta to serve
Freeze mince you don’t intend to use. Uncooked mince can be frozen for 2-3 months. Rather than freezing loose mince in roundish shape as bought from the butcher lay it out flat to freeze. This is important as it allows the mince to freeze evenly and it allows the mince to thaw evenly. Cooked mince dishes can also be frozen for later use.
Thaw frozen mince (and any meat) in the fridge, on the lowest shelf below and or away from any ready to eat food, and only thaw in the microwave if using the mince immediately thereafter.
