    1. Put lamb, onion, garlic, oregano, thyme, breadcrumbs, egg, salt and pepper into a bowl and mix well using your hands. Roll the mixture into tablespoon-sized balls.
    2. Warm the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and when hot add the meatballs. Keep turning until brown all over. Remove from the pan using a slotted spoon and place on kitchen paper.
    3. Pour away any excess oil from the frying pan. Add jar of pasta sauce and tomatoes, scraping any bits on the bottom of the pan. Put the meatballs back in covering with the sauce. Cover and simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes until the meatballs are no longer pink in the centre.
