  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Heat the oil in a 22cm ovenproof frying pan over a medium heat. Add the pasta and halved meatballs and warm through for 2 mins.

  2. Mix the eggs with the Cheddar, mustard and parsley; season well.

  3. Pour over the pasta mixture, swirling and pressing down with the back of a fork to evenly submerge.

  4. Scatter over the tomatoes and crumbled feta. Cook for 4-5 mins until the egg has set, then transfer to the grill for 3-4 mins until cooked through and golden on top.

  5. Set aside for 2 mins before loosening at the sides and inverting onto a board. Top with the rocket to serve.

Cook's tip: To stretch this further, slice into 6-8, then stuff into rolls with mayo and lettuce for a simple lunch
