Mention meatballs, who turns their noses up at this meal.  There are many ways with many ingredients, but this recipe has been condensed down to save time and money.  For a variety, why not mix up the pork mince with some beef mince (lean of course).  If you have no mince about, you could always use a packet of 6 sausages.

Instructions
  1. Grate the carrot, onion and parmesan and put into a large mixing bowl. Now add the remaining ingredients, except the oil. Remember to season well. I say a pinch, I mean a healthy pinch of seasoning, as some of the flavour seems to get lost when cooking. If you don't have mince, you can use a packet of sausages and take the meat out of the casings.
  2. Now with your bare hands, squish all of it together until well mixed and everything looks evenly coated.
  3. Now take some mince and roll in your hands, so that they are about walnut sized balls. Continue until you have all the mince in ball shapes and ready to cook.
  4. Heat the oil in a frying pan and in manageable batches, cook the meatballs until they are brown on all sides and set aside on kitchen paper to soak up any excess oil.
  5. In tomato sauce (see link below for recipe) cook the meatballs for 10 - 15 minutes over a medium-low heat.
  6. Serve with spaghetti or pasta and some extra grated parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves if available.
