Chicken and Zucchini Meatballs

  I am really excited about this recipe. I'm a huge meatball fan and thrilled to have a delicious recipe for meatballs that are actually quite healthy. You could really use chicken or turkey in this recipe, but ground turkey breast was about $7.59/lb and chicken was on sale for $2.99/lb. I think you can see why I went with the chicken.

I was actually going to make this dish with cous cous, until I opened the pantry and saw a box of … [Read more...]

You get all the flavors of lasagna with a lot less calories. I decided to make mine vegetarian, but you can easily use a meat sauce if you think you might need a little more substance. Now don’t get me wrong the zucchini is not going to taste exactly … [Read more...]
