Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onions, garlic and oregano. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until onion has softened. Remove from heat. Cool for 10 minutes.
Combine mince, parmesan, rice and half the onion mixture in a bowl. Roll mixture into balls.
Re-heat remaining onion mixture over medium heat. Add tomato puree and Fountain Tomato Sauce. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Add vegetables and cook for 5 minutes or until vegetables are heated through.
Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook meatballs in batches, turning, for 5 minutes or until browned. Transfer to the sauce. Simmer gently for 5 minutes or until just cooked through. Serve with pasta or mashed sweet potato and sprinkle with parmesan.
