a) Add the garlic, tomato puree and Italian herbs to the veggies and stir through for 1 minute. b) Add the chopped tomatoes with basil, vegetable stock powder and water (see ingredients for amount). c) Mix together, bring to a boil, then lower the heat and pop the veggie meatballs back in. d) Simmer until the veggie meatballs are piping hot and the sauce has thickened, 5-6 mins.


a) Once the sauce is cooked, taste and season with salt and pepper if you feel it needs it. b) Once everything is cooked, add the pasta to the pan with the sauce along with half the hard Italian cheese. c) Gently mix to combine. TIP: Add a splash of water if needed.
