Recipe: Turkey Meatballs and Zucchini Spiralized Pasta

Hey guys,

So I’m attempting to be healthy but also am pretty average in the kitchen so when I made these Turkey Meat Balls and they were simple, healthy yet still tasty, I thought I’d share the recipe with you all!

Serving: 10 meatballs

Ingredients:

  • 500 grams Turkey mince
  • 1/3 cup of bread crumbs
  • Milk
  • 1 egg
  • Pasta Sauce
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 small carrot
  • 2 thin zucchinis
  • 6- 8 mushrooms (optional)
  • Angel Hair pasta (optional)

How to:

1. Start off by pre-heating the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and lightly oil your baking tray and place in the pre-heated oven.

2. Peel and dice up the onion into bite size pieces.

3. With the carrot, peel and grate.

4. Then mix in the 1 egg, the mince, bread crumbs, milk, onion and carrot. Don’t forget to add salt and pepper.

5. Once all combined starting making the meatballs (no bigger than a gold ball). Place each ball in the baking tray that was in the oven. Be careful as the oil will be hot.

9. While the mushrooms are frying move onto the zucchini. You will need a spiralizer to spiralizer the zucchini.

10. Take the mushrooms out of the fry pan and place on a plate. Into the fry pan chuck the zucchini and cook for 1 -2 minutes.

11. If you need some carbs, cook some angel hair pasta. It’s great to mix in with the zucchini.
