We use this meatball sauce with our meatball recipe, but you could use it with whatever you like - it could even be a vegetarian or vegan recipe if you swap the beef stock for a vegetable stock. It's rich and tangy and as always suitable for a gluten free diet, although not suitable for anyone who is avoiding nightshades.
This is a great sauce to pop in the freezer for when you want a quick and easy meal after a long day when you just can't face cooking from scratch.
This is a nice chunky vegetable sauce, you could whizz it up with a hand blender into a smooth meatball sauce if you prefer, or if your kids are very fussy
about eating bits. When mine were younger they had pretty sensitive gag reflexes, so I used to make the sauces smooth, now a days not so much, although my son will pick out any obvious mushrooms!

The picture is obviously of the sauce with the meatballs, the recipe for which is here, but of course you can omit these and just have the sauce with whatever accompaniment you fancy. We'd love to hear your creative ideas for other ways you've used it, so do drop us a line with any pictures you've taken! There's a handy little link down at the bottom of the page that explains what to do.
