Notes about this recipe

    In these lean times I used frozen turkey pieces which I partially defrosted and blitzed up in the food processor to make turkey mince. Also used tinned chopped tomatoes instead of plum, as it's what I had. Didn't have an egg to bind the meatballs, so added a dash of milk. Other than that, stuck to the recipe. Overall it was pretty nice but not outstanding. The sauce would have benefited from some red wine and tomato paste I think, to give a thicker, richier constistency. Turkey meatballs need plenty of seasoning.

    I added half the liquid to the sauce than stated in the recipe and even that was too much. Meatballs were okay - a bit bland and of course because they are turkey mince they also look rather insipid!
