Although I would really love to eat Antipasto platters for dinner all the time, sadly my waistline and budget probably wouldn’t allow it. Rather, our dinners normally look something more like this…
What is that colourful array of ‘random’ I hear you ask? Why it is some rather tasty turkey meatballs, served atop a bed of greens!
The meatballs were inspired by a recipe I found in a cooking magazine – that intrigued me with the inclusion of harissa.
Turkey mince, parsley, red onion and harissa….
Shaped into meatballs…
Then pan-fried until cooked through.
Made all the more special with a jar of homemade tomato passata (courtesy of our friends’ Italian neighbour) and some steamed broccoli.
Served atop a bed of rocket leaves, and finished with a sprinkle of shaved parmesan.
I quite like subbing out the traditional pasta base, and replacing it with greens, in meals like these. Keeping in all the flavour, but losing the heaviness that pasta inevitably provides.
Throw in a glass of vino – and I was one happy lady!
What about you? Are you a fan of meatballs?
