Ingredients

1 lb ground turkey meat

1 cup shredded mozzarella

5 cloves garlic, grated

2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1 Bouillon cube

1 teaspoon red crushed chili pepper flakes, optional

Salt and fresh cracked black pepper, to taste

2 cup fresh chopped cilantro (or parsley)

4 tablespoons butter

4 packs zucchini noodles

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tablespoon Sriracha

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine ground turkey and ground pork, cheese, grated garlic, Italian seasoning, bouillon cube, red chili pepper flakes, chopped cilantro, and black pepper. Mix well with your hands or fork and form medium turkey meatballs. Arrange the turkey meatballs on a plate and set them aside.

  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook the turkey meatballs for 8 – 10 minutes on all sides, until browned and cooked through (165°). While cooking, baste the turkey meatballs with a mix of butter and juices. Remove to a clean plate and set aside.

  3. In the same skillet melt the remaining tablespoon of butter; then add lemon juice, hot sauce, and red pepper flakes (if you want). Add the zucchini noodles and cook for 3 or 4 minutes, stirring regularly, until zucchini noodles are done but still crisp and juices have reduced a bit. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and garnish with more cilantro or parsley if you like.

  4. Push zucchini noodles on one side of the skillet add the turkey meatballs back to the pan and reheat for a minute or two. Serve the garlic butter turkey meatballs with lemon zucchini noodles immediately with a lemon slice on the side. Enjoy!
