  • 1 Pack (500g) Heck! Chicken Italia Mince
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp Fennel Seeds
  • 1½ tbsp Sunflower Oil
  • 1 Onion (Chopped)
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, (Crushed)
  • 1 tbsp Tomato Purée

  • 150g Mozzarella Ball, torn into pieces
  • 1 Garlic Bread Stick (Shop Bought)

To Serve - Green salad and Whole Wheat Spaghetti,


  1. Pre - Heat the oven to 200'C
  2. Combine the Chicken Italia Mince, Dried Oregano and Fennel Seeds in a bowl. Take walnut-sized pieces of the mixture and roll into balls.
  3. Heat half the oil in a large, shallow ovenproof pan and cook the meatballs until browned all over – don’t worry if they’re not cooked through. Transfer to a plate.
  4. Heat the remaining oil in the pan and add the onion. Cook until softened, about 10-12 mins, stirring regularly. Stir in the garlic for another minute, then the tomato purée, chopped tomatoes and Worcestershire sauce.
  5. Take the garlic bred out of the packaging, slice along the pre - made scores and then cut the piece in half again.
  6. Simmer for 10-15 mins, then season to taste. Place the meatballs on top of the sauce, then add the mozzarella, garlic bread and the cheddar on top. Bake for 15-20 mins until golden and crisp.
  7. Serve up with your green salad and whole wheat spaghetti.
