Chicken meatballs with potatoes and pesto
( SERVES 4 )
The minced filling from high-quality sausages is one of our favourite quick dinner ingredients. If you can find a place that makes really tasty good quality sausages, then half of your work is done.
- Heat oven to 190C. Place potatoes in an oven dish and coat in oil, salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes while you make the meatballs.
- Squeeze out meat filling from sausages and roll into ping pong ball-sized balls. Take potatoes out of the oven after 15 minutes. Place meatballs in and around the potatoes. Pour over the tomato puree and add dobs of the pesto over the meatballs. Add the currants, season and place back into the oven for a further 15-20 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes. Serve with spinach and some crusty bread if you like.
