Lean Italian Turkey Meatballs And Zucchini Spaghetti

Here it is, the most delicious low carb Italian meal. I got this recipe from http://www.skinnytaste.com . This is how it goes ๐Ÿ™‚

turkeyballs

2 pkg lean ground turkey

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/4 cup finely chopped parsley

2 eggs

2 cloves of garlic crushed

Salt and pepper to taste

For the sauce:

2 tsp olive oil

4 cloves of garlic crushed

2 28 oz cans crushed tomatoes ( I used fire roasted organic)

2 bay leaves

Salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl combine ground turkey, breadcrumbs, eggs, parsley, garlic and cheese. Using clean hands, mix all ingredients and form meatballs. In a small saute pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and saute until golden. Pour crushed tomatoes into Crock Pot with the bay leaves. Add garlic and oil. I made large meatballs so I cooked on a baking sheet for about 15 minutes on 350 degrees. I then transferred the balls to the crock potย in the sauce. I cooked on low for 4 to 6 hours. I served with zucchini spaghetti. I made the spaghetti with this little gadget below

Very simple to do. Just wash zucchini and cut ends off. Lightly shred into a bowl until you get near the seeds of the zucchini. I used about 4 or 5 large zucchini to make this pan of spaghetti.

Well that is it. The husband and Piper loved it. This was very easy and healthy.
