  • Step 1

    Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-low heat. Add the onion and garlic, stirring occasionally until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Add Red Gold Whole Peeled Tomatoes and Tomato Love Sriracha Diced Tomatoes. Use a wooden spoon to crush the whole peeled tomatoes into smaller pieces.

  • Step 3

    Add chili crisp, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 4

    Use an immersion blender to blend the sauce into a smooth consistency. [Note: If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can transfer the sauce to a regular blender or food processor] blend it, and transfer it back to the pan.

  • Step 5

    Add the frozen plant-based meatballs to the sauce. Cover and cook over low heat until the meatballs are cooked through, stirring occasionally, about 12-17 minutes.

  • Step 6

    Once the meatballs are cooked, top them with shredded mozzarella cheese. Cover again until the cheese has melted. Uncover, top with fresh basil and extra chili crisp if desired.
