Pork Meatballs

These tasty morsels are one of Noel's little specialties - he loves using pork mince and has made up these little balls on several occasions. I have added a nice delicate tomato sauce to accompany them for dinner but honestly any sauce goes well with them.
Pork Meatballs
Makes: 20
Points per Ball: 1
500g pork mince
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried sage
salt and pepper to taste
cooking spray
In a large bowl mix the pork mince, onion, egg, tomato paste, parmesan cheese, oregano, sage, salt and pepper thoroughly and until well combined.
Shape into 20 balls (you can make smaller or larger if you wish).
Heat a large frying pan and spray with cooking spray. Place balls into the pan, gently turning to ensure they are completely sealed and brown. Reduce heat, cover and cook for 20 minutes, continually turning to ensure they do not stick.
(You could also place in a casserole dish, cover and put in the oven for 20 - 30 minutes on a low heat to cook through).
Note: Adjust points to suit number of meat balls made.
This is how we had them - Pork Meatballs with Tomato Sauce (and served with fettucine).

These look so yummy. Daughter has asked if you could make them. Have you got the recipe for the tomato sauce you put with it.
I must say all your recipes I have tried so far have been great.
