Cheesy Meatballs with Fresh Tomato and Basil Sauce
  1. In a bowl, add the beef, half the garlic, tomato paste, breadcrumbs, Perfect Italiano Parmesan and egg. Season with salt and pepper and then use your hands to mix together until combined. Form the mixture into golf ball size meatballs and refrigerate for 20 minutes
  2. In a large sauce pan, heat the olive oil and over a medium heat. Once hot, add the remaining garlic and fry for 2 minutes. Add the cherry tomatoes and use the back of your spoon to squash the tomatoes slightly. Bring to a simmer and continue to cook for 8 minutes. Add the basil and then season with salt and pepper
