Spaghetti and Meatballs

Thank you Michelle Bridges (12WBT)

35 mins prep time

35 mins cooking time

Serves 4

Ingredients:
1 medium zucchini, coarsely grated
300g extra lean beef mince
1/2 medium onion, coarsely grated
1 medium carrot, coarsely grated
olive oil spray
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon dried oregano
400g can diced tomato
1 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
100g dried wholemeal spaghetti
1 tablespoon finely grated parmesan cheese

Method:
Squeeze the excess moisture from the zucchini in a double thickness of paper towel. Combine the zucchini in a large bowl with the mince, onion, carrot, oregano, half of the garlic and half the fresh herbs. Season with pepper. Use clean hands to mix until well combined. Shape mixture into 24 balls. Transfer to a plate and place in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.

Spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil. Heat over medium heat. Add half the meatballs. Cook for 3 minutes each side, turning gently, or until golden on each side. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining meatballs.

Spray the pan with oil. Add the remaining garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds or until aromatic. Add the tomatoes and stock. Bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer. Add the meatballs and simmer for 20 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly. Stir in the parsley, and balsamic vinegar. Season with pepper.

Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti following packet directions.

Divide the spaghetti between serving bowls. If you’re making it for the kids or hubbie, simply increase the amount of pasta. Top with the meatballs and sauce. Sprinkle with the parmesan.
