Zucchini Spaghetti with Lean Meatballs

zucchini spaghetti and lean meatballs

Ingredients (2 servings)


  1. Wash and cut the zucchini depending on how you like your spaghetti. You can cut them by hand with a knife or with a peeler and knife or by machine.
  2. You can prepare the zucchini spaghetti in a pan or microwave. Pan: Preheat a pan, add some olive oil and cloves of garlic (finely chopped) and let it simmer for a few minutes, until they get soft. Microwave: Put the zucchini in the microwave until the zucchini gets soft. This will be after about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Put the lean minced beef, the egg, the oatmeal and the fresh black pepper in a bowl and mix.
  4. Make meatballs out of the mixture.
  5. I first cooked the meatballs and then I fried them in a non stick pan but you can also fry them without cooking, or you put them in the oven.
  6. Put the zucchini spaghetti, the home made tomato sauce and the meatballs on a plate and enjoy.

Gluten free. You can replace the beef mince with chicken mince or canned tuna. You can also make a vegetarian variation of this recipe.
