Pumpkin meatballs in a red sauce

italian vegetable meatballs in tomato sauce

My son adores Meatballs so I always try to invent new versions of this dish. Here is one of my family's favorite plates - pumpkin meatballs in a red sauce, loved by kids and adults. Easy to make, original and yummy. Perfect for both lunch and dinner. Bring a little of Italy to your table :-) Buon appetito!

To make pumpkin meatballs in a red sauce you need:

  • 500g (18oz) Minced Meat of your choice (I used minced veal)
  • 150g (5oz) pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • bread crumbs
  • 1 onion
  • 1 carrot
  • celery
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1,5 cup tomato sauce
  • salt, black pepper
  • oil


Wrap the bell pepper in alluminum foil and bake it at 200C/392F for 1 hour, leave it wrapped until it's completely cold and then peel it. Blend it using a Food Processor to get a puree. Leave it aside


Put the minced meat, Half Onion and pumpkin together and blend them using a food processor or a meat mincer


Add 1 egg, salt, black pepper and bread crumbs (add as much as needed to get a smooth meat mixture that keeps together)


Make a lot of meatballs of a walnut size and fry them (2 minutes for each side) in oil


Cut half onion, carrot and celery in small pieces and fry them in some oil for 5 minutes


Add tomato sauce and bell pepper puree and let the mixture boil



As soon as the sauce starts boiling put the meatballs in it, cover with a lid and cook for 20 minutes over a low fire. Add some salt and black pepper


Your delicious dinner is ready :-) Thank you for the visit!
