To Make Meatballs
To Cook Sauce
Add the mince to a large bowl with the breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, egg, herbs, tomato paste, olive oil and season.
Mix gently to combine using clean hands.
Shape the mixture into balls slightly bigger than a golf ball.
Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes to set.
Heat a little oil over a medium-high heat in a large frying pan and brown the meatballs all over (do this in batches).
Once browned, remove carefully with tongs and set aside on a plate.
