  • 2 large courgettes (250g each)

  1. Heat oven to 200C. Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Whilst the oven is heating up, sprinkle flour on your surface and roll the burgers into 4 balls per burger. Put the meatballs on the baking tray and cook for 20-25 mins until cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, spray a pan with oil, add garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring. Add tomatoes and cook for 3 mins until they soften, add wine and bring to the boil. Reduce heat, add capers and olives and simmer for 5 mins, add cooked meatballs and simmer for 2 mins.
  3. Using a julienne peeler or spiralizer, slice courgettes into long spaghetti. Spray a large frying pan with oil and set over a medium-high heat. Add courgettes and cook, stirring for 1-2 mins until wilted. Spoon onto two plates, top with meatballs and sauce, and serve sprinkled with cheese.


Tip!: make courgette ribbons with a vegetable peeler if you don’t have a julienne peeler.
