    Dee514's Note:

    These can be served for dinner, in place of meatballs, with pasta and marinara (meatless tomato) sauce which is the way I usually serve them. They can also be served as an appetizer, with sauce on the side for dipping.

      **NOTE: If you are going to substitute large zucchini for the small ones called for in the recipe, you should squeeze the grated zucchini dry before adding the rest of the ingredients. Large zucchinis contain much more water than small ones, and may cause the mixture to be too wet to hold together.

      This was a wonderful recipe!!! I used cracker crumbs in place of bread crumbs and used a whole egg in place of two whites. It came out great. Thanks for posting! Barb

      I really wanted to make something tasty and different with zucchini, other than bread, or roasted, etc. These were wonderful, and sooo tasty! I took one of my older dish towels(can stain a little green), and rang out basically every possible drop of liquid from it. From that point, everything went like clockwork. My one son won't touch any green veggie other than broccoli(go figure that one!), but after his brothers and sisters kept grabbing them as I was making them, he caved in, and actually sort of gave a look of acceptance! I did not think they needed the sauce, for they were quite tasty on their own, but I should give it a try. Thanks for posting a real keeper for this family!

      I figured this was going to be awful or awesome. It's awesome. I made use of the food processor to get grated vegetables and used Marinara Migliore Marinara Migliore (Italian Marinara Sauce). There were no leftovers.
