  • Pork and chorizo meatballs with spaghetti

    • susiec26714 on July 16, 2020

      This is my go to meatball recipe. I have never made any other since I discovered this one. Super easy to make and super delicious. The sauce with the addition of fennel is amazing. My husband doesn't like tomato skins so I sometimes part blitz it to make a smoother sauce

Reviews about this book

  • Ms. Marmite Lover

    This book ascribes to the 80/20 theory of healthy eating... However the food in this book, skinny or wicked, looks so delicious it's hard to believe that it might be 'diet food'.
