  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 jar spaghettic sauce
  • 1 egg

Porcupine Meatballs

  • Cook the rice according to package directions then…...and this is *Important*…let it cool!
  • Once it’s cooled add it to your turkey, and egg. Toast the bread and crush up into the meat mixture. Form into meatballs and put onto greased baking sheet.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degree.


  • Prepare zucchini 'zoodles' using a spirilizer. Chop onions, garlic, green peppers. Add all of it into a bowl then top with olive oil. Put onto another baking sheet.
  • Both the meatballs and the zoodles now go into the oven for 35 minutes.
  • In the last 5 minutes of the meatballs and zoodles cooking heat up the spaghetti sauce to pour over the top of your meatballs and zoodles.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan. Enjoy!


Tips for making Porcupine Meatballs and Zoodles:
  • Let the rice completely cool before adding to the meatball mixture. Not only could you burn your hands when mixing the meatballs together it could end up cooking the eggs.
