    Savoury lamb meatballs

    Total time:             Ready in 40 mins

    Serves: 4


    400g lamb mince
    1 red onion, finely chopped
    ½ x 25g pack fresh flat-leaf parsley, leaves chopped, plus a few leaves to garnish
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    35g pitted green olives, finely chopped
    1 tbsp Patum Peperium  The Gentleman’s Relish
    1 medium egg, beaten
    1 tbsp olive oil
    350g tub Waitrose Cherry Tomato & Basil Sauce
    300g essential Waitrose Orzo


    1. Place the mince in a large bowl and add the red onion, chopped parsley, garlic, olives, Gentleman’s Relish and egg. Using your hands, bring everything together until well combined. Roll into 24 walnut-sized balls and chill on a plate for 10 minutes, or longer if you have time.

    2. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over a medium heat. Add the meatballs and fry for 12–14 minutes until browned all over and cooked through. Add the tomato sauce to the pan and gently
    heat until bubbling and piping hot.

    3. Meanwhile, cook the orzo in a pan of boiling water, according to pack instructions, for 7 minutes. Drain well and divide between 4 shallow bowls. Top with the meatballs and tomato sauce and garnish with a few parsley leaves.
