    1½ tbsp olive oil
    300g pack Waitrose 1 Venison Hand Rolled Meatballs 6s
    1 echalion shallot, finely diced
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    ½ x 300g pack chestnut mushrooms, sliced

    1. In a deep frying pan heat 1 tbsp olive oil and gently fry the meatballs until golden. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Serve with the bucatini pasta cooked according to the pack instructions.
