- 1 lb ground beef (80/20)
- 1/3 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tbsp Italian seasoning
- 1 large egg
- 28 oz can diced tomatoes no sugar added
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 ½ tbsp olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 5 medium zucchini spiralized
- salt to taste
- Preheat oven to 375F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, add all meatball ingredients. Mix until everything is evenly blended.
- Using a 1.5 tbsp scoop, scoop up meat and form into round balls. Place onto prepared baking sheet. You should be able to make about 25 meatballs.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes or until meatballs are fully cooked.
- Add all marinara sauce ingredients to a blender. Blend on low speed until pureed.
- Pour sauce into a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened. You should have approximately 3 cups of sauce.
- Add oil and garlic to large skillet. Bring to medium high heat. Once oil is heated, add in zucchini. Cook until zucchini is tender but still crisp. Add salt as needed. Drain water from zucchini noodles.
Preparing Meal Prep
Add zucchini noodles to meal prep containers. Add about 5 meatballs to each container. Add 4-5 tbsp of sauce to each meal prep. I recommend storing the sauce in a small container to be added when ready to eat. You will have a lot of leftover sauce, which you can store for a future recipe.
- When reheating meal prep, the zucchini will release more water. Drain water before adding sauce. Garnish with additional parmesan cheese and fresh parsley if desired.
- The zucchini will release additional water when reheated. I recommend that you store the sauce separately, so that you can drain the zucchini after it is reheated, and then add the sauce.
- I use these Meal Prep Containers* and this spiralizer.*
