I have been low-carb dieting on and off for years. These days the popular Keto diet is the way to go. Finding recipes that are actually something you desire can be tough. I started making this dish a couple of months ago and now I literally make it every week. My family, who are not low carbing has requested it over and over! You know when they would rather have zucchini over pasta the dish is a winner!
The recipe is super easy to put together. You can use fresh zucchini and make them into zoodle spirals with a spiralizer or my new favorite Green Giant Veggie Spirals Zucchini. The Green Giant veggie zoodles are in the vegetable freezer section of the grocery store. You better stock up because the frozen version is just a good as fresh and they go fast. Here’s the recipe!
Baked Zoodles and Meatballs
Turkey meatballs over zucchini noodles baked in a casserole dish.
- 6 cups zucchini spirals 2 pkgs Green Giant Frozen Veggie Spirals or 4-5 fresh Zucchini, spiraled
- 1 25 oz jar spaghetti sauce We use Victoria Tomato Basil
- 1 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1 16 oz bag Meatballs I used Trader Joes Flame Broiled Turkey
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste
Cook meatballs by directions on the packaging.
If you are using the frozen zucchini spirals, defrost and drain liquid from them. If you are using fresh zucchini, cut the zucchini with a spiralizer.
Heat spaghetti sauce in a large saucepan on med-low.
Add zucchini spirals, garlic and olive oil to a frying pan. Sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste.
Toss zucchini and garlic 5-10 minutes to break it down. It will have a semi-clear look to the spirals when they are done.
When the meatballs are finished cooking add them to the spaghetti sauce and continue to cook while tossing the zucchini.
Add cooking spray to a 9x9 baking dish. Add a couple of tablespoons of spaghetti sauce to the bottom of the baking dish.
Add the zucchini spirals to baking dish.
Add meatballs on top of zucchini spirals.
Pour sauce over zucchini noodles and meatballs.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top of sauce, spirals, and meatballs
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes and enjoy!
