 Ingredients List

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 4 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • several cranks of black pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with non stick foil. Set aside.
In a large skillet, drizzle olive oil and heat over medium high heat. Add garlic and saute for about 1 minute. Add in shredded zucchini.
Cook for about 5 minutes, until most of the water in the skillet has evaporated. Transfer to a colander and press out remaining liquid.
In a large bowl combine bread crumbs, egg, seasoning, basil, and parmesan cheese. Mix with the zucchini until fully blended.
Using a 2Tbsp scoop, form 20 balls, rolling tightly, and transfer to prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, until firm and lightly browned.
Serve meatballs with your favorite sauce on pasta, zoodles, or a hoagie with cheese!
