Meal-Prep Turkey Meatballs with Zoodles
This Meal-Prep Turkey Meatballs with Zoodles is one of my favorite healthy lunches to prepare in advance. I love to substitute spaghetti or traditional noodles with zucchini noodles or Zoodles, as I like to call them!
To make this delicious lunch recipe, start by making and cooking the meatballs. While the meatballs cook, make the zucchini noodles. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the zucchini noodles to the pot and cook for 1 minute before draining completely. Assemble the dish by dividing the zucchini noodles among four lunchboxes. Top with the cooked turkey meatballs and marinara sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and enjoy!
