The best tomato sauce for meatballs

Meatballs and tomato sauce is a great meal because everyone loves it from my big strong husband to my 3 year old daughter who calls all red meat Duck at the moment.

The tomato sauce is key and to get the best flavour I tend to use tinned tomatoes or passata because frankly at this time of year our tomatos can be the pallid insipid variety. If Im using tinned I love De Cecco. Sweat down some shallot and garlic until it is soft and translucent and add your tinned tomatoes or bottle of passata. If using tinned dont use all the liquid as the idea is to reduce your sauce until it is thick and yummy and too much liquid will take ages to reach this stage. Taste and be prepared to need to add a pinch of sugar as bitterness is not uncommon but easily rectified.
