INGREDIENTS

For the Meatballs
500g 5% Lean Mince Beef
1 White Onion finely sliced ( or quick blitz in the food processor)
Handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped
1 Pepper of your choosing, finely chopped
1tsp Fajita Spice Blend
1 Egg

For the Sauce
1 Courgette, roughly chopped
1 White Onion, finely diced
1 Pepper diced
2 cloves of garlic
1tsp Fajita Spice Blend
1 Can Chopped Tomatoes (400g)
250g Pasta (enough for 4 people)

INSTRUCTIONS
Combine all the meatball ingredients in a bowl, using your hands mix together thoroughly.
Take small amounts and form into balls.
Heat a heavy skillet pan and place a little oil in, put on a medium heat and cook the meatballs for 10 minutes, turn occasionally to prevent sticking.

At the same time have two other pans on the hob, also on a medium heat. One for the sauce and the other for the pasta. Get the pasta cooking at this stage.

For the sauce, heat some oil in a pan, add the garlic and onions and soften for a couple of minutes.
Add the peppers, courgettes and spice, stir and cook for a further minute.
Loosely cover with a lid for a couple of minutes, then add the tomatoes and stir.
Cover and cook until your pasta is ready, drain the pasta and add to your sauce.
Cook for a further minute or two.

Serve and place your meatballs on top.
