Sweet Chilli Meatballs, Gnocchi & Sauce

You might see that there's a trend in me using sweet chilli sauce. It's because it's one of the delicious but not so naughty ones, especially when compared to things like mayo etc. I also have plenty of it spare on hand, and I am trying to use it up whenever I can. This recipe is fantastic to make after work and is incredibly tasty. Moderate your portions and you can have this as a calorie-controlled meal, all whilst being super delicious. You can make this dinner with hand made or store-bought meatballs - it doesn't matter.

  • Gnocchi (pre-made unless you have heaps of time)
  • Pasta sauce (unless you're happy with sweet chilli meatball sauce gnocchi, in which case you don't need to buy separate pasta sauce).
  • Beef mince to make into meatballs or pre-made mince meatballs, depending on what's cheaper on the day in your supermarket
  • Sweet chilli sauce
  • Sunflower oil (or whichever oil you fry your food in. Note if you use olive, do not burn it)
  1. If your meatballs are not pre-made, make them out of the beef mince.
    Make them small enough so that they don't take ages to fry.
  2. Put sweet chilli sauce onto your raw meatballs and fry them in your olive oil (or whichever oil you use for frying lightly) in a non-stick pan.
  3. While the meat is frying, boil gnocchi.
  4. Heat your pasta sauce. Mine was a sundried tomato flavour and I just microwaved it, it was delicious.
  5. Place gnocchi onto plate and your chosen sauce on it.  Place meat around the gnocchi. Eat and enjoy 🙂
