Instructions
Sauce
  1. In a large pot heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, add the onion, garlic, carrot and cook for 5 mins, or until softened and lightly golden.
  2. Add tomatoes and basil, season to taste.
  3. Bring to boil then reduce to a simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally.
Meatballs
  1. Combine the mince, ricotta, herbs and egg in a large bowl.
  2. Shape 2 tablespoons beef mixture around each bocconcini to enclose. Make sure the cheese is hidden inside the mince.
  3. Once all the meatballs have been created, carefully place each meatball into the pot with the sauce.
  4. Simmer in sauce for another 15- 20 mins.
Pasta
  1. Slice the zucchini length ways into thin plank strips, remove any seeds.
  2. Cut length ways into strips resembling spaghetti. Important to make strips the same size as to cook evenly.
  3. Heat Olive Oil in a frying pan and sauté the zucchini for 2 mins.
  4. To serve, place zucchini pasta into a bowl, top with Meatballs, add extra sauce over the top. Best with thick crunchy bread to wipe up all the sauce from the plate!
