500g lean beef mince
1 small brown onion, finely diced
1/4 cup basil leaves, finely chopped plus extra small leaves, to serve
1 tablespoon olive oil
400g quality napolitana pasta sauce
3 medium zucchini, spiralised into zoodles
1/4 cup shaved or finely grated parmesan
Baby rocket salad, to serve
Lemon wedges, to serve
Step 1 In a large bowl combine the mince, onion and chopped basil. Season and roll into heaped tablespoon sized meatballs (makes approximately 20 balls).
Step 2 In a large non-stick frying pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Cook the meatballs for 6 to 7 minutes, browning on all sides. Add the pasta sauce and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly reduced and heated through.
Step 3 Add the zoodles, and toss to coat.
Step 4 Place meatballs and zoodles into bowls, top with parmesan and basil leaves and serve with baby rocket and lemon wedges, if desired.
