Easy Zucchini Meatballs

🍝 Meatballs are a staple for meal prep because they’re simple, great for picky eaters and can be served with just about everything!

 

🍽 Put them on salads, over spaghetti squash, on top of zucchini noodles, tucked in a lettuce wrap or just eat ’em solo!

 

💁🏻‍♀️ These Zucchini Meatballs are a great way to sneak in some healthy veggies because you can’t tasty the zucchini and once it’s covered in marinara… it’s a meatball party🎉!

  2. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix with your hands.
  3. Form into 12 golf ball-sized meatballs and place on the baking sheet. I used a melon ball scooper to make sure they were even in size.
