METHOD :

  • Preheat your oven to 180C degrees
  • Place all the ingredients for meatballs in a bowl and using your hands mix until well combined. Fry off a small amount of the meat in a pan to test for seasoning. Use an ice cream soup to measure out your meatballs and scoop them onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle olive oil over meatballs and place in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • In a pan heat oil before adding onions and a pinch of salt. Cook for 1 minute or until the onion begins to brown slightly, then add garlic, chilli flakes and cook for 1 minute before adding tomatoes and stirring through. Add ½ cup of water and allow to simmer until sauce starts to thicken..
  • Thinly slice the zucchinis to make strips of noodles, alternatively use a ‘zoodle’ gadget to make noodles. Add to sauce in pan to soften and absorb sauce. Add in parsley and olives, stir through. Once meatballs are ready, add to pan and toss through to coat everything evenly in sauce.
