If you haven’t tried zucchini noodles yet you really need to. They are a great alternative to regular noodles. Using zucchini noodles (aka zoodles) instead of pasta allows you to add another veggie to your meal and skip out on the added calories and carbs. Don’t get me wrong, we love pasta too. But sometimes I want a lighter option. I’ve tried spaghetti squash and we just don’t love it the way other people do. But we do really enjoy zucchini noodles.
My boys love meatballs. I’ve made quite a few different recipes over the years and this one ranks up there as one of our favorites. There are a few reasons for this. Number one is that there are no onions. I love onions but for some reason I don’t love the crunch of onions in my meatballs (and neither does my husband.) Second, there are veggies (carrots and spinach) in the recipe but you cannot taste them at all. Third, these meatballs are made with 1/2 ground turkey and 1/2 ground beef, making them a little more lean than all beef meatballs. And finally, I love this recipe because it makes a lot so there are plenty leftover for the freezer.
