Total Time 6 hours 30 minutes


  • Meatballs:
  • 500g pork mince
  • Half a cup shredded fresh Parmesan cheese
  • About 2 tablespoons garlic powder (or to taste)
  • About a teaspoon of all purpose seasoning
  • About 2 teaspoons of mixed herbs
  • Sauce
  • 375g jar of garlic and herb tomato paste (I used Leggo's)
  • A generous sprinkle of garlic powder and dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Water


  • Mix all of the meatball ingredients in a bowl with a wooden spoon, til well combined.
  • Take one spoonful at a time and roll into a ball. One wooden spoonful makes just the right size (about an inch wide) Chill overnight (optional). Brown in frying pan/searing slow cooker (this step helps them stay together as there's no binder like egg in the mix)
  • Set aside the meatballs.
  • In the base of the slow cooker, mix half of the tomato paste, half the garlic, half the basil, half the sugar and one cup of water.
  • Put the meatballs on top of this mixture in the cooker.
  • In the jar, mix the rest of the garlic, basil, and sugar, and fill the jar up the rest of the way with more water. Mix with a fork and pour over the top of the meatball and sauce mix.
  • Cook for 6 hours on low.
  • Serve with your preferred pasta!
