Ingredients

    14 ozs Ground Lean Beef
    1 teaspoon dried Parsley
    1 tablespoon dried Basil
    1 teaspoon dried Thyme
    1 tablespoon uncooked White Long Grain Rice
    1 can of Campbells Mediterranean Low Fat Soup.

    To Serve:
    I use freshly cooked Tagliatelle Pasta or Spaghetti.

    You will need a casserole dish with a lid (either round, oval or square) in which to cook the meatballs.

Directions

Pre-heat your oven to 150 degrees.
Into a large bowl put your ground minced beef, basil, parsley, thyme. Mix these around with a spoon. Add in 1 tablespoon of your uncooked rice and mix.
Open your can of Campbells soup and add 1 tablespoon of the concentrated soup to your mixture and stir well.
Take a heaped tablespoon of the mixture and form it into a meatball. Put it into the casserole dish and continue until you have approximately 10 meatballs.
Pour out the remainder of the can of Campbells soup into the empty bowl, re-fill the can with warm water and add to the soup concentrate. Stir well and pour the soup over the meatballs.
Cover with the casserole lid and put into the oven at 150 degrees for 40 minutes.
After 40 minutes remove the lid and cook for a further five minutes in the oven.

I serve this with either cooked Spaghetti or Tagliatelle. For a really special occasion you can grind some Parmesan Cheese over the meatballs as you serve them.

Enjoy !
