Turkey-Veggie Meatballs

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Cook4_6

I love this meat ball recipe and have been making it for years. My Father is Italian, and this reminds me of a lighter version of the meat balls he made when I was a kid. This recipe is from Cooking Light. ( I have also made this using a combination of beef, sausage, and/or ground turkey as well)

I was really surprised by this recipe! Everyone loved it, even DH who "hates" zucchini. I made as is except used ground chicken instead of turkey and added a few more spices. I upped the cooking time because DH is ultra paranoid about things being fully cooked and doing that gave it an interesting crisp outer shell with a moist inside. Served with chicken gravy.
