1 cup zucchini grated, juices squeezed
½ cup bread crumbs
½ cup Parmesan cheese grated
½ cup onion grated with juices
1 large egg
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
salt, pepper to taste
In a large mixing bowl, add 1 pound ground turkey, 1 cup of grated and squeezed zucchini, ½ cup of bread crumbs, ½ cup Parmesan cheese, ½ cup grated onion with juices, 1 egg, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Using your hands or a spatula, mix everything together until well combined.
Using a 1 ½ tbsp ice cream scoop, scoop out the mixture, roll it into a ball, and transfer to a baking sheet with parchment paper. Repeat the same with the rest on the mixture.
Bake them at 400°F for about 18-20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
You can serve the meatballs as they are, or add to the marinara sauce.
Preheat a large skillet with marinara sauce, then lower the heat to medium/low. Add cooked meatballs and stir them in. Cover with a lid and let cook for about 7-10 minutes.
