This comfortable meal is actually the work of three separate actions, coming together into one dish!
I made the meatballs ahead of time and put them in the freezer. The below recipe will make at least 2 – 3 separate servings.
For the red sauce, i combined all the ingredients and included the meatballs (after a little defrosting in the microwave) to warm in the sauce.
The Zoodles should be cooked right before serving.
Turkey Meatballs Ingredients:
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onions
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 tsp salt
- 28oz can of crushed tomatoes
- 1/4 onion, chopped
- 1 Tbsp oregano
- 1 Tbsp basil
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
- 2-3 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
Combine all ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer for about 10-15 minutes, until the flavors meld. (If including meatballs, add to the sauce and allow the meatballs to warm with the sauce.)
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
Using a spiralizer, like the Vegetti, create zucchini noodles. Sauté the noodles in olive oil with salt and pepper, for about 5 minutes. Serve immediately, topped with red sauce and meatballs.
