We love this tasty vegetable and meatball tagliatelle recipe. The additon of the roasted vegetables really gives this classic recipe a twist! Bold, chunky and full of flavour it’s the ideal recipe for your family or for serving friends. Plus by using tagliatelle instead of spaghetti this meal becomes really filling! Everyone will love it!

400g meatballs

250g courgettes, cut into sticks

Food editor’s tip:

Sprinkle 1/2tsp chilli powder over raw meatballs to perk up the flavours!
