Meatballs and Zucchini!

Piping hot meatballs and tomato sauce poured over zucchini spaghetti

This lighter version of spaghetti and meatballs tastes AMAZING! I was actually thinking about this meal in the middle of the night when I couldn’t sleep. I used my spiralizer to make these zucchini noodles and the video can be seen here.

You really can get creative with meatballs as they can be made in so many ways. Below is an Asian inspired meatball recipe that I like. It is baked instead of fried in oil. For a more traditional meatball recipe, I would encourage you to add what you like/omit what you don’t like to it.

1 lb of ground beef, chicken, or pork
2 tsp soy sauce (adds moisture, flavor and helps bind everything together)
1/2 c. panko
salt and pepper to taste
Handful of chopped scallions
Optional: bunch of chopped cilantro and 1 tbsp chopped ginger

Mix together all of the ingredients and form round meatballs the size of golfballs placing them on an oiled baking sheet. Preheat oven to 425 and bake for 10 minutes until cooked through.
