Keto Turkey Meatballs [with Zoodles]
This heavenly dinner meal will be a treat for any table: fried turkey meatballs bursting with flavor are covered with a deliciously savory tomato sauce and placed over a bed of fresh and tender zucchini noodles. This meal is tasty, full of nutrition, and filling while not feeling too heavy—it has all the bonuses of noodles without any of the drawbacks! If you’re craving a delicious health kick, read on.
Zucchini is a go-to in the keto lifestyle, and for good reason: it’s low in carbs, fat, and sugar, but packed full of the good stuff like antioxidants and nutrients. It’s also easy to cook in many forms for succulent deliciousness: zoodles are an excellent example. Use a spiralizer to noodle-ify your zucchinis, boil to al dente tenderness, and drizzle with olive oil. Healthy comfort food has never been easier or more delicious!
Zoodles are fantastic, but the real star of this show is the moist homemade turkey meatballs, smothered lavishly in a rustic roasted garlic and sundried tomato sauce. Turkey is an excellent source of nutrients, vitamins, and protein. In saying that, feel free to swap out your meat with pork, chicken, beef, or whatever suits your personal preference.
So if you thought low-carb meant no more Italian cuisine, think again! This dish elicits all the classic savory goodness of a classic meatballs-and-pasta meal while remaining entirely keto-friendly. Perfect for a cozy night in or a big lunch, this recipe is sure to become a new favorite.

Awesome, as usual, Ruled me. Thank you…
Thank you 😊
Aren’t the zoodles soggy?
If you overcook them or don’t cook them in a hot enough pan they can be. You’re welcome to use palm noodles instead if you prefer that, just double-check the macros fit into your lifestyle.
Another clear winner — thanks!
