  1. Stir 300g lean beef or turkey mince with finely chopped onion and herbs.

  2. Use your blender to make fresh breadcrumbs. (Ideally a few slices of wholemeal bread as even white-bread eaters aren’t going to notice!).

  3. Add the breadcrumbs to the mince then roll into bite-sized meatballs.

  4. Place on a greased baking tray and put in the oven at gas mark 6 (200°C, 400°F) for about 20 minutes.

  5. While baking, cook a little garlic and oregano in olive oil, adding 400g chopped tomatoes and simmering until it has all broken down into a smooth sauce (blend if needed).

  6. Boil your spaghetti and then top with the meatballs and finally the sauce.
