- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 16 oz pork (I purchased mine from Whole Foods with 7g fat & 23g protein per 4 oz)
- 2 tbsp minced garlic
- 1/4 cup diced onion
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (I used Publix brand)
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp dried parsley
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp pepper
- 4 and 1/2 cups zucchini noodles (I bought mine pre-spiraled from Whole Foods)
- 2 and 1/2 cups Newman’s own organic marinara sauce
In a large bowl mix pork, minced garlic, diced onion, breadcrumbs, and seasonings. Set a pan on medium heat then add olive oil. Work the meat mixture by hand and form golf ball size meatballs. Add to hot oil and brown, about 3 minutes each side. Remove meatballs from pan and add zucchini noodles. Toss the noodles in the oil to coat and cook for 3 minutes. Then add the marinara sauce, toss in the noddles, and nuzzle the meatballs back in. Simmer for 10 minutes and enjoy! Salt and pepper to taste.
