Meatballs w/Hidden Veggies

Anytime I want my family to eat any vegetables (without complaining) besides broccoli or corn, I have to hide them in their food. Sometimes I puree them, and sometimes I finely grate them. These meatballs have zucchini and carrots in them. I didn't say a word about the hidden veggies until the next day after the leftovers were eaten *evil grin*.

1-lb ground beef (or turkey) (I actually used beef this time!)
1/2 c Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 c grated carrot
1/2 c grated zucchini
1 egg
1 jar pasta sauce (or make your own
12 oz whole wheat spaghetti (or regular)
  • Combine meat, bread crumbs, carrot, zucchini, and egg. Mix well. 
  • Use Meatball Scoop  to make meatballs.
  • Place meatballs on baking sheet. Bake at 350* until done (20-30 minutes)
  • While meatballs are baking, heat pasta sauce (or make your own) and boil spaghetti. 
  • Put cooked meatballs in pasta sauce and pour over spaghetti. 
  • Top with Parmesan cheese.
