My version is a good source of iron, omega-3's and it also provides a sneaky serve of vegetables.
The meatballs cooked without the sauce are suitable for babies as finger foods from 7-9mths+.
Begin the sauce first. Heat oil in a large pan, then saute onion and garlic.
Add remaining sauce ingredients, simmering gently while you prepare the meatballs.
For the meatballs, combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with clean hands.
Form small meatballs (roughly the size of plums) and place each gently in the simmering sauce. They will shrink slightly when cooked.
Turn meatballs once and simmer gently until cooked through. If sauce looks too dry at any stage, add a little of the pasta water.
Stir through fresh basil leaves before serving.
Serve on top of fresh pasta with a side of green salad.
