Zucchini Spaghetti and Chicken Meatballs (Paleo)

Healthy Zucchini Spaghetti

2-3 medium zucchini

That’s it. One ingredient! I used a peeler that has a julienne blade, but you could use a spiralizer. If you don’t have those tools use a regular peeler and make wide ribbons. I keep the zucchini raw, make the tomato sauce and then just add the warm sauce over the zucchini to give it a lightly blanched effect.

I make my own sauce but you heat up your favorite jar sauce, just please read the label and watch out for crap.

Chicken Meatballs

1 lb ground chicken (I always try to buy pastured chicken)
1/4 cup diced onion
salt and pepper
crushed red pepper flake
fresh basil, parsley, oregano finely chopped

Preheat the oven to 425 and spray a foil lined cookie sheet. In a bowl mix all the ingredients. I didn’t use any type of binder and it was very wet and sticky but that’s ok. Form eight wet and sticky meatballs and place on the cookie sheet, bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and add to a pot of simmering tomato sauce. Cook in the sauce for additional 15-20 minutes.
