ABOUT Easy and Delicious Zucchini Meatballs RECIPE

Meatballs are a traditionally Italian cuisine but Spaghetti with meatballs is a popular cuisine in the United States. A meatball is a ground or minced meat rolled into a small ball, sometimes along with other ingredients like onions, herbs , butter, breadcrumbs and seasoning. My recipe of zucchini meatball gives a light healthier version to meatballs. Meatballs can be fried, baked or braised in sauce.The zucchini meatballs are delicious and can be served with tomato sauce and spaghetti. The meatballs can also be served in pizza as meatball pizza.
