1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Add pasta and cook according to packet instructions. See step 4.

2. Heat a large frypan with oil and add meatballs. Brown over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, turning.

3. Grate zucchini and add to the pan as you go. Pour in tomato sugo, cover and cook for further 5 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.
