Roasted Fennel and Radish Summery Pasta Salad With Meatballs

Topped with some sprouts and parmesan cheese. You wouldn't think radishes and fennel would taste good together, let alone roasted radishes but it's so damn tasty.

The trick to create fast and flavorsome meatballs is using sausage meat! No need to make a mess rolling meatballs. So easy and quick and you can choose any kind of sausage you like. Pork-sausages would also taste amazing in this pasta salad, as pork and fennel are best friends.

Perfect as a cold salad in the park or as a hot dinner. A perfect way to incorporate radishes for children because the grilled radishes have a more toned down flavor!
