Finely grate the orange peel, this will be used in the meatballs. Squeeze the orange and keep the juice. Finely chop the onion and garlic. Deseed (optional) the hot chili pepper, chop finely. Sweat the onion, garlic and hot chili pepper in oil. Then add the tomato puree and cook briefly with the other ingredients, add the orange juice and tomatoes, cook for 30 minutes, season with salt and pepper.

Toast the pine nuts in a pan until they become a light golden brown colour. Grate the Emmentaler AOP on a coarse grater.
