Short-cut Pork Meatballs with Zucchini Pasta

Serves 1

2 Weigh-Less Pork Sausages

100g cooked angel hair pasta

1/2 onion, sliced

A handful cherry tomatoes, halved

200g zucchini noodles – pre-made available from Woolies, but it is super easy to make your own using a spiraliser or simply grating baby marrow/zucchini with a cheese grater

5ml olive oil

2ml Chipotle Spice (Woolies) or you can make your own version with smoked paprika and chillies

 

Remove pork meat out of sausage casings and form/roll little meatballs.  Oven-bake at 180 for about 1o minutes.

125g fat free cottage cheese – add garlic salt, parsley, Woolies Chimichurri spice mix (optional)

125g tomato and onion mix (I used my home made marinara sauce – tomatoes, onion, olive oil, Italian herbs, salt, black pepper)

 

Make ‘ravioli’ by placing 2 baby marrow strips, overlapping like in the photo to form a cross.
