zucchini spirals and turkey meatballs,

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 keto meatball casserole with zucchini dish a couple of months ago and now I literally make it every week. My family, who are not low carbing have requested it over and over! You know when they would rather have zucchini over pasta the dish is a winner!

Amazing Low Carb Baked Zoodles and Meatballs

The recipe is super easy to put together. You can use fresh zucchini and make them into zoodle spirals with a spiralizer or the easy way by using frozen 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 as 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.
Servings: 4 People
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Calories: 205

Ingredients

  • 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 ½ 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

Instructions

  • Cook meatballs by directions on the packaging. 
  • If you are using the frozen zucchini spirals, cook as directed on the package and then 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 9×9 baking dish. Add a couple of tablespoons of spaghetti sauce to the bottom of the baking dish. 
  • Add the zucchini spirals to the baking dish. 
  • Add meatballs on top of zucchini spirals. 
  • Pour sauce over zucchini noodles and meatballs. 
  • Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce, spirals, and meatballs
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes and enjoy!

    And so did the family.

  3. Stephanie says:

    What a great recipe for using fresh zucchini from the garden. Can’t wait to try this. Love that is it is meat and a good serving a veggies (low carb). Better get a spiralizer ordered.

  4. Donna R Himlin says:

    This was amazing! I have never used spiral zucchini in a recipe before and I was pleasantly surprised. Thanks for the great recipe.

  5. This was delicious! I had to spiralize a LOT of zucchini as my 3 boys are athletes and big eaters. Thank you for this fantastic recipe! :)

  6. I love this! My 3 year old daughter wanted “spaghetti and meatballs” but I’m low-carbing it, so this was the perfect compromise. It was so easy and delicious, a real crowd pleaser. Thanks!

  7. This looks really good and kid friendly. I have just got myself a spiralizer and am still trying out recipes. Any idea how/if this freezes? I make everything from scratch, so it is quite a bit of work… Freezing a portion would be saving me time another day.

    1. Hi Sina,
      When I use my spiralizer I usually do a huge batch of zucchini and freeze single portions. Yes, this will freeze ok, but just know zucchini holds water and it could be a little runny. Just try it an see if it is ok for you. Thanks for reading!

  8. This looks so good. I’ve been trying to be low carb on Mondays and Tuesdays and I could def. some low carb recipes. I just got a noodle spiralizer, too!!
