  2. Place all the bread, diced tomatoes, garlic, tinned tomatoes, almonds, red wine vinegar and ¼ cup olive oil into a food processor and blend. Pour the sauce over the meatballs and bake at 160°C for 15 mins.
  3. Bring a pot of water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Strain and toss in 2 tbsp olive oil.
  4. Serve the pasta with the baked romesco meatballs and finish with a squeeze of the lemon.
