Spaghetti and Meatballs with Tomato Sauce

As I posted the actual Pork Meatballs yesterday and following a request, I thought I would share the quick and easy tomato sauce I make to turn these meatballs into a meal.

Spaghetti and Meatballs in Tomato Sauce
Serves: 6
Points per serve: 6
1 serve of Pork Meatballs
2 x 425g tins diced tomatoes
2 tsp white sugar
1 cup water
250g spaghetti or pasta of choice
chopped parsley, for garnish

Make meatballs as per recipe shaping into 24 balls (not 20 like stated).

Heat a large frying pan and spray with cooking spray. Place balls into the pan, gently turning to ensure they are completely sealed and brown. Remove from pan to a plate, cover with foil to keep warm.

In the same pan add the tomatoes, sugar and water. Bring to the boil, lower heat and simmer for approx 5 minutes. Return the meatballs to the pan, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile cook pasta in a large pan of boiling water until tender. Drain.

Serve pasta topped with meatballs and sauce, either in individual dishes or a large serving dish. Sprinkle with chopped parsley if using.
