MEATBALLS IN A TOMATO ESSENCE

This is one of my husbands favorite way to eat our home grown tomatoes. It is a very easy and simple dish to prepare but does involve some cooking time.

INGREDIENTS
1 Kg Tomatoes preferable home grown
500 g mince beef preferable grass fed and premium
optional extras:
Tagliatelle
Sharpe cheese shaved

Dice the tomatoes and cook them very slowly over a very low heat with a little olive oil until juices run and evaporate. Preferably for an hour to an hour and a half. Roll mince beef into balls and fry off until sealed and colored  add to reduced tomatoes. Either serve as is with a salad and crusty bread or over tagliatelle and shaved cheese. The flavor from the tomatoes is insane!
