DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, zucchini shreds, egg, bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Form into large meatballs, mine were about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter and I made 16 meatballs. Place into a glass baking dish (I used a smaller 7x11-inch glass dish, what you see above. Then top each meatball with a little pasta sauce.
  • Bake the meatballs in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until cooked through. Cooking time will vary depending on size and thickness of the meatballs.
  • Cook the pasta as directed.
  • Serve Zucchini Meatballs over pasta and sauce with a side of veggies. We had green beans!
