  1. Step 1

    Place a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add the meatballs and cook, turning, for 12 mins or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, spray a large frying pan with olive oil spray and heat over medium heat. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 mins or until tomatoes collapse. Push half the tomatoes to the side of the pan. Crush remaining tomatoes with the back of a spoon to release the juices.
  3. Step 3

    Place zucchini in a heatproof bowl. Pour over enough boiling water to cover and set aside for 2 mins or until slightly soft and heated through. Drain well. Add the zucchini and meatballs to the tomato in the pan with pesto. Season and toss to combine. Divide among serving plates and top with parmesan.

    Add this: For crunch and extra flavour, sprinkle with toasted pine nuts before serving.
