Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.

In a food processor, whizz the onion and parsley. Add the meat and process until fully combined. Turn out into a bowl.

Into the mince mixture, add the carrots, garlic, breadcrumbs, zucchini, tomato sauce and eggs. Combine thoroughly.
