Satisfying dish that can be made without chilli for those who don’t like it hot

These rosemary beef meatballs are very satisfying with a kick and can be eaten as a main meal with salad or courgette, but also as ‘tapas’. If you don’t like it too spicy you can half the amount of chilli, or even leave it out for a non-spicy sauce. If you like it garlicky and have no social arrangements for the rest of the day you can add another garlic clove. I don’t use breadcrumbs in the meatballs as it is not necessary and I prefer not to eat wheat. Meatballs are traditional eaten with spaghetti but I have it with courgette ‘spaghetti’ instead. To make this you’ll need a vegetable spiral slicer which can be bought from most cook shops and home stores. I use this slicer a lot to make vegetable ‘pasta’ or interesting salads. Of course you can also just slice or finely cut the courgette if you don’t have a spiral slicer.
