Italian Meatballs with Cheesy Parsnip Mash
  1. Soak bread in milk for 10 minutes until very soft, squeeze out milk and combine with mince, onion, garlic, egg and herbs in a bowl. Season to taste. Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls and set aside
  2. Heat oil in a large frying pan and cook the meatballs, turning frequently, until browned. Pour over pasta sauce and 1/2 cup water and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through
  3. Meanwhile, boil or steam potatoes and parsnip for about 15 minutes or until cooked through and very tender. Drain and set aside for 5 mins for the steam to evaporate from the potato
  4. Return to saucepan and mash with a potato masher until smooth. Heat sauce according to packet instructions. Stir cheese sauce into mash and season to taste
  5. Serve Cheesy Parsnip Mash topped with Italian Meatballs
Tips & Hints:
  • Parnsip Mash is delicious served with pork, chicken or lamb. Also use as a delicious topping for cottage or shepherd's pie.
  • Devondale cheese sauces can be used to add flavour and creaminess to regular mashed potato.
