Method

  1. Place courgette in a fine sieve, sprinkle with a little salt and leave for half an hour for moisture to drain out. Squeeze out any remaining moisture and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Preheat oven to 180°C, line a baking dish with baking paper and spray with a little oil.
  3. Place courgette in a clean bowl. Mix in the parsley, breadcrumbs, pepper, parmesan cheese and egg.
  4. Roll the mixture into 12 small balls about the size of a golf ball. Place on the baking dish and cook for 20-30 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Serve with our fresh tomato and capsicum pasta sauce, garnished with basil sprigs and cherry tomatoes.
