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!

To make the Meal-Prep Turkey Meatballs with Zoodles, you will need the following ingredients:
