Recipe tips

  • Vary the veggies any way you like! You can swap the peppers with whatever you have on hand, such as chopped carrots, sliced mushrooms and onions.
  • Top with chopped fresh parsley or basil for a hit of colour!
  • Don’t want to make the full amount of subs? Keep some of the meatballs in sauce and toss with hot cooked pasta on another night!
  • Lemon juice can be substituted with wine vinegar
