This recipe was one of those nights where I had lots of leftover veg in the fridge and I was lacking on meat so I decided to defrost a pack of meatballs. I didn’t fancy cooking pasta, so I wanted to create a dish that would taste great with rice. And…I think I more than managed it – this recipe was delicious!
So what was leftover in my fridge?
- Spiralised butternut squash
- 1 red onion
- 1 courgette
- 6 beef meatballs (serves 2)
- Handful of spinach
- Spices to season – paprika, garlic, cajun spice
- Salt & pepper
Once I’d chopped and diced my veg, I added the onion, courgette and meatballs to a frying pan with a dollop of coconut oil.
Once the veg began to brown and the meatballs were cooking, I added the butternut squash and spinach to the pan. Season and stir in the passata to make the sauce.
Serve with boiled rice and enjoy!
