I’m almost embarrassed to admit that I’ve never posted a recipe for (zucchini) spaghetti and meatballs. Once, I posted a Turkey Feta Meatballs with Kale Pesto, but I’m talking about the classic tomato sauce spaghetti and meatballs.
When I first started writing material for Inspiralized, I was bragging, “Oh – the spiralizer is wonderful – spaghetti and meatballs are now low-carb and diet-friendly!” But look at me- six months into it and I’m posting my first true recipe for an ‘ole bowl of spaghetti & meatballs!
I chose turkey meatballs, because I personally like the taste better AND they’re leaner than meaty meatballs. Ha, meaty! Oh man, with jokes like that, Monday’s going to be rough.
I also added a twist to the sauce by using Muir Glen‘s fire roasted canned tomatoes for a more robust flavor. The fire roasted tomatoes add a kick in each bite, adding another dimension of flavor that you wouldn’t normally get with typical diced tomatoes.
The turkey meatballs are nothing fancy – just absolutely delicious! Everything works magically here: the slight crunchiness of the zucchini noodles, the moistness and parsley flavors in the turkey meatballs and the warm fire roasted tomato sauce.
Don’t make the widely popular mistake and starve yourself to reach your New Year’s Resolution goals. There’s no need for that! With Inspiralized dishes, we’re eating big satisfying bowls of pasta and noodles – without the heavy calories and carbs.
Guess how many calories per serving (noodles with 3 meatballs)!
Oh, come on – just guess!
Okay, I’ll tell you: about 235. 235 calories!
So there you have it: a classic spaghetti and meatballs…. Inspiralized!
