  • 180g jar cheese-stuffed peppers, drained
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 350g jar Leggo’s Stir Through Roasted Vegetables pasta sauce
  • 375g penne

Method

STEP 1

Make a small indent in 1 meatball. Place 1 stuffed pepper in the centre of the meatball and shape the meatball around the pepper to enclose. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the meatballs. Cook, turning, for 3-4 mins or until browned. Transfer to a plate. Add the onion to the pan. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 mins or until the onion softens.

STEP 2

Return the meatballs to the pan with the pasta sauce and ½ cup (125ml) water. Simmer for 10-15 mins or until the meatballs are cooked through.

STEP 3

Meanwhile, cook pasta in a saucepan of boiling water following packet directions or until al dente. Drain well.

STEP 4

Add the pasta and spinach to the meatball mixture. Stir until the spinach wilts.

Serve with finely grated parmesan
