2 packs HECK Chicken Italia Meatballs

500g courgetti

1 tbsp olive oil

1 red pepper cut into chunks

1 yellow pepper cut into chunks

1 avocado peeled and chopped

3 tbsp low fat Greek yoghurt

1 clove garlic crushed

½ lime

2 pinches of ground black pepper


Avocado cream

Place the avocado, yoghurt, garlic and lime and 1 pinch of black pepper into a mini food processor and pulse to form a smooth sauce. Pour into a small bowl ready to serve.



Place a pan of water onto the boil and when simmering add the courgetti and cook for 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and drain in a colander.

Return to the pan and add a pinch of black pepper and olive oil and set aside.


Meatballs and peppers

Place one pack of the meatballs onto one half of a grill tray and grill for 6 minutes.  Remove the tray and turn over the meatballs.

Now place the pepper chunks onto the other half of the tray alongside the meatballs and brush with half of the olive oil.

Place the tray back under the grill for 6 minutes to finish cooking the meatballs and the peppers.


To serve

Take four hot bowls and equal amounts of courgetti to each.

Place four meatballs onto the courgetti in each bowl and scatter over the grilled peppers.

Drizzle over the avocado cream and serve.
