--- Meatballs ---
Preheat the oven to 400° and line a sheet tray with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine beef, turkey, egg, italian seasoning, salt, almond flour, and coconut aminos. Mix until everything is completely combined- the best way to do that is with clean hands.
Wash your hands, then use a cookie scoop to make balls. Roll between palms to make smooth.
Place on prepared sheet tray and bake for 20 minutes.
--- Zoodles ---
Using a spiralizer, make noodles with zucchini.
Saute in 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil until desired consistency.
--- Sauce ---
Combine all ingredients in food processor and then heat in a saucepan until warm.
Pile zoodles on a plate, top with meatballs and sauce.
Serve with a simple green salad or canned green beans.
