Bolognese Style Meatballs


A great midweek meal idea, that’s so easy to make too!

Prep time:15 mins

Cook time:25 mins

Serves: 4


  • 500g lean beef mince
  • 1/3 cup Leggo’s Pizza Sauce
  • ½ small red capsicum, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons dried breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 500g jar Leggo’s Bolognese Pasta Sauce
  • 400g penne, cooked and drained
  • Shaved parmesan cheese, for serving


Step 1

Combine mince, Leggo’s Pizza Sauce, capsicum and breadcrumbs in a large bowl and stir well. Form tablespoonfuls of mixture into meatballs using wet hands. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large non stick frypan and cook meatballs until lightly browned. Add Leggo’s Pasta Sauce and bring to the boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.

Step 3

Toss hot pasta through the meatball mixture and serve with parmesan cheese.

Tasty Tip!

Meatballs can be assembled a day ahead and refrigerated until required. Alternatively, meatballs can be made and frozen for 1 month before cooking.
