Spaghetti and meatballs is a classic dish that I don't think I'll ever get tired of. However, in an effort to eat more veggies, I have come up with this healthier alternative to the classic beef meatball. Super soft and moist, these little turkey bites are everything you could want in a meatball. They're also melt in your mouth tender and juicy because all the veggies inside. Win-win!
So what are the secret veggies in these meatballs? Shredded zucchini and carrot; they are healthy without lending any noticeable veggie flavor. The other secret I have to share about meatballs is the cooking method. I always cook my meatballs right in the sauce. Its so easy, keeps them moist, and actually flavors the sauce really nicely! I normally make these when I make a big batch of my homemade sauce but if you're using jarred sauce you'll likely have to cook the meatballs in batches as it is important they all get completely covered. If you're not planning on serving with a tomato sauce then these can easily be pan fried or baked, but I think these are best served over a big pile of noodles with some homemade tomato sauce!
