Turkey Meatball Pasta

Ingredients: • 500g turkey mince • 1 bunch of flat-leaf parsley • 50g of breadcrumbs • 1 clove of garlic, white onion and lemon • Salt and pepper to season • 1 courgette, grated • 3g fennel seeds • Your favourite grated cheese to finish For the sauce: • 3 mixed peppers • 2 carrots • 1 spoon paprika and dried oregano • 1 clove of garlic

• 2 tins of chopped tomatoes • 1 small carton of passata • Half a bunch of basil • 500g of chosen pasta

Method: 1. Finely dice your white onion and parsley, and zest your lemon. Save your lemon juice for later. Grate your courgette and mix it well with the turkey mince. 2. Then add the remaining breadcrumbs and begin forming your meatballs. Bake until they reach 75C degrees or above, with your oven set at around 180C degrees. 3. Finely dice a red or white onion and caramelise this in a pan to get some nice colour. Add your diced mixed peppers, carrots and garlic. Sauté for a further five minutes, making sure you don’t burn your pan. 4. Add your chopped tomatoes and passata. Then add one vegetable stock cube with water and allow it to cook out further until your vegetables are soft. Add remaining spices. 5. Add your turkey meatballs to the tomato sauce and hidden vegetables, then finish with lemon juice and sliced basil. Taste and check for any further seasoning, like salt and pepper. 6. Bring your pasta to the boil and cook for 8-12 minutes. Drain and toss with oil and add everything together. Finish with freshly grated cheese or Parmesan.
