The Weight Watchers ‘One Pot Meals’ cookbook is my latest purchase. The recipes in it are great, really handy to make. This recipe is a lot more simple than it seems. Give it whirl.


4 Propoints per serving

Serves 4


400g pack Weight Watchers premium pork sausages

50g carrot, peeled and grated finely

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Calorie controlled cooking spray

300ml passata

500ml chicken stock

2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme

150g open cup mushrooms, sliced

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 red pepper, cut into strips

20 pitted green olives

175g baby spinach leaves

Freshly ground black pepper



1. Remove the skins from the sausages and discard, then put the sausage meat in a large bowl and work in the carrot and oregano with plenty of black pepper. Using wet hands, shape into 24 meatballs, each about the size of a walnut.

2. Heat a large, lidded, non stick pan and spray with the cooking spray. Add the meatballs and fry gently to colour them, shaking the pan every now and then to make sure they don’t stick.

3. Pour the passata into the pan with the stockm thyme, mushrooms, paprika, pepper and olives. Stir gently then cover and leave to simmer for 15 minutes.

4. Add the spinach, stir gently until wilted, then serve.
