Preparation Instructions

  1. Mix beef, bread crumbs, onion, milk, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and egg in a large bowl. Shape mixture into 12 (2-inch) meatballs.
  2. In 14-inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add meatballs; cook 6 to 8 minutes, gently turning occasionally, just until browned on all sides.
  3. Add Muir Glen organic pasta sauce and water; heat to simmering. Simmer 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until meatballs are thoroughly cooked and the internal temperature reads 165° F (74° C) for 15 seconds. Using slotted spoon, transfer meatballs to plate, and cover to keep warm.
  4. Stir zucchini noodles into the pasta sauce; cook 2 to 4 minutes, stirring gently, until noodles soften. Divide noodle mixture among 4 bowls. Top with meatballs. Sprinkle with basil and Parmesan cheese.
