Meatball casserole

This is from a recipe sheet that I picked up in Woolworths in August, 2019.


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 700ml bottle passata sauce
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 celery sticks, diced
  • Approximately 40 small meatballs (recipe recommends Woolworths packets)
  • 1 cup macaroni
  • 300g of baby brussel sprouts
  • Handful of chopped parsley leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C
  2. Heat the oil in a deep, flameproof casserole dish over a medium heat
  3. Add onion, garlic, carrot and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes
  4. Pour passata over vegetables. Half fill the bottle with water, shake and then pour into the casserole
  5. Stir in pasta and meatballs, stir, and season
  6. Cover the casserole dish and then place in the oven, cooking for 25 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through
  7. Meanwhile steam or microwave the brussel sprouts until tender. Serve with meatball casserole and top with chopped parsley
