Baked Meatballs

So good and easy... a favourite!

In a jug / bowl mix:
1 tin chopped tomatoes
a splash of water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons chutney
In another bowl mix the following together (with hands is easiest):
1 X 500g packet lean mince
1 egg
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup semolina / breadcrumbs
+- 3 tablespoons minced (very finely chopped) onion
1/2 cup grated zucchini
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan / hard cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper

Roll the mince mixture into balls, about the size of golf balls.  Place them in the fridge for minimum 40 minutes (but you can leave all afternoon) covered with cling wrap.  Remove.  Sprinkle a little flour on them.  Place in a baking tray.  Take the jug of sauce and pour around the meatballs.  Bake for about 35-40 minutes... moving them gently about in the sauce about halfway through the cooking... will thicken and be simply delicious over spaghetti.
