Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, divide and roll into meatballs about 4cm in diameter.
Pre heat a large frying pan to hot and fry the meatballs in batches, so that they are nicely browned all over but not cooked through. Do not wipe the fat out of the pan
Turn the heat down to medium, add oil first then the passata, followed by the garlic, basil, salt and pepper, stir well.
Place all the meatballs in a single layer into the sauce. Simmer for approx 45 minutes, turning occasionally and making sure that the sauce does not catch. You can also get them to this stage and place in the oven to cook instead.
Serve with green beans and low carb rolls with garlic butter. Low carb roll recipe link below.
