Zucchini Noodles And Chicken Meatballs

in #foodielast month

As summer comes to end so does the summer harvest. Our neighbors ha e a large garden that provides us with loads of fresh vegetables each week. They have been giving us so much zucchini we have been playing around with some different recipes.

This one is pretty simple, delicious. It’s zucchini noodles and chicken meatballs with a butter white wine sauce. Pretty much you need a large zucchini to make about a pound of noodles. We ha e a noodler that spiyralizes for us. 1 pound ground chicken, bread crumbs, herbs, garlic and parmigiana cheese.

After making the noodle dry them really well. In a bowl combine chicken, garlic, bread crumbs, egg, parmigiana and some herbs (parsley, dried oregano, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder). Roll the meat balls and cook in a skillet until golden.

Remove the meatballs and place them on a baking to finish in a 300 F oven. Use the pan and deglaze with wine and butter. Add in some garlic and toss in the noodles. Cool for five mins and combine in meat balls when they are cooked throughly.

Once complete combine everything in a bowl and top with parsley and parmigiana. Add some red pepper for an added kick!

All in all it’s about 30 mins from start to finish so it’s a great weeknight meal. It’s also pretty healthy as you have cut out the grain.

Man I can hear supper being made downstairs right now and a quick citation stop lead me to your post. Truth be told, I thought it was a cannabis bud dramatic extreme closeup at first glance;)

Either way, looks so good I really have the munchies now!!

I could use some bud right now!

Yum, that looks fantastic. We used the last of our zucchini the other day. We didn't get as much as I had hoped this summer. I think there were some issues with sunlight being able to open the flowers and then the bees weren't able to get at them to pollinate. We have the tool to make noodles with the zucchini. You should try making waffles sometime. My wife makes a savory shredded chicken and zucchini waffle that is awesome.

A waffle!? That’s insane well not really I just looked to the recipe and it looks good. I’d like that with some savory chicken. I have a bottle of smoked bourbon maple syrup that might be good over that too!
