Need a zoodler? I got mine on Amazon back in the day. Looks like this. I think they call them Vegettis at the big box stores.

I was lazy and bought a big bag of frozen meatballs at Sam's Club. They were made with soy flour so they aren't too high carb. If you'd rather make your own check out the recipes below.

I have tried this recipe from Your Lighter Side.

Or this one from i breathe i am hungry.
