Homemade Red Sauce and Meatballs over Zoodles

This comfortable meal is actually the work of three separate actions, coming together into one dish!Meatballs over Zoodles

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
Mix all ingredients together and roll into small meat balls. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. Eat now or freeze for later!
Red Sauce Ingredients:
  • 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.)

Zoodles Ingredients:

  • Zucchini
  • 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.
