Moroccan meatball tagine

We all love meatballs but we’ve had more than enough pasta recently so thought I’d transform them into a tagine and dish up with couscous. My boys aren’t massive fans of lamb mince and I’m not particularly keen on the amount of fat in it, so I’ve replaced the lamb with lean pork mince. It…

I do enjoy the invention test challenge of coming up with something tasty and healthy from leftovers and store cupboard staples!  This is also an easy and quick dish…
