I am ZERO Italian, just confessing this up front. In fact, I remember my childhood and my dad making spaghetti and meatballs with a side of MASHED POTATOES. I kid you not! How I ended up loving the food I do now?….I have no idea. Pretty sure I never had a Zucchini during my entire childhood either!
However, fast forward and I’m still not Italian BUT I think my Vegan Spicy Zucchini “Meat”balls & Pasta way outdoes my father’s idea of “Italian” LOL!
The Spicy Zucchini “Meat”balls have a great texture and hold up amazingly. Of course you can serve this with the pasta of your choice, we just happen to love Ancient Harvest Organic Quinoa Pasta….and it’s what my husband bought at the grocery store.
Zucchini I heart YOU
Did you know, Zucchini squash is one of the most popular summer squashes in Americas and Europe? Zucchini is one of the very low-calorie vegetables; provide only 17 calories per 100 g. It contains no saturated fats or cholesterol. What’s not to love about that? Zucchinis can be available all around the year, but they are at their best during late spring and summer seasons.
Zucchinis make great appetizers (served with hummus), used in stir-fry, served over an eggless chickpea omelette, used in bread recipes or even in brownies! Oh, zucchini i do “heart” you!
