Cooking Instructions
1. Add 3 cans of diced tomato, capsicum, onion, 1 tablespoon of garlic and 1 tablespoon Italian style herbs to a large and deep frying pan.
2. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4. Add 1 tablespoon of minced garlic and 1 tablespoon of Italian style herbs to bowl and mix through Minced thoroughly with your hands.
5. Press a small portion of the Minced into a round ball roughly two thirds the size of a golf ball. You should be able to get about 16 meatballs from this mix.
6. Add oil to a small to medium frying pan and put on a medium to high heat.
7. Add the meatballs to the frying pan and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring regularly to ensure that the meatballs are cooked evenly.
