Meatball Marinara

Preparation time: 120 minutes


Another italian-inspired crohn's disease safe recipe!

This one has a relatively short preparation time but a longer cooking time in order to allow all those italian seasonings to flavour the sauce. But it's worth it!

Heat the olive oil in a pan and gently fry the celery along with the dried oregeno.

Combine the stock, chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, sugar and fresh basil to the pot and bring to a simmer.

I also add a tiny amount of mild chili powder at this point, but you have to be really careful with this. I would recommend building up to it and trying the recipe without it first to see how you feel afterwards.

Allow the sauce to simmer for at least an hour on a low heat, though I recommend leaving it for 2 hours stirring occasionally.

30 minutes before the end, gently fry the turkey meatballs in a pan to crisp the outside, and then add to the sauce for the remaining time.

Combine this with your favourite pasta to serve!
