Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and line a sheet tray with a silicone mat.
Step 2
Combine Ground Chicken (1 lb) , Seasoned Breadcrumbs (1/4 cup) , Grated Parmesan Cheese (1/4 cup) , Egg (1) , Minced Dried Onion (1 tsp) , Garlic Powder (1 tsp) , Dried Thyme (1 tsp) , Dried Parsley (1 tsp) , Fresh Basil Leaves (5) , Salt (1 pinch) , and Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch) in a medium bowl and use your clean hands to just dive in and bring it all together into a uniform mixture.
Step 3
Form the mixture into 20 or so smaller meatballs and lay them out on the sheet tray. Bake them for 20-25 minutes, until golden on the outside and cooked through. While they bake, get the sauce simmering.
Step 4
Heat the Olive Oil (1 dash) in a large skillet with deep sides, then add the Tomatoes (2) , Onion (1) , Garlic (4 cloves) , and Fresh Basil (1/2 cup) . Let them soften and get fragrant for a few minutes and lightly mash the tomatoes to release their juices while you stir it.
Step 5
Add in the Tomato Paste (1 Tbsp) and Red Wine (1/4 cup) and stir them in well. Let the wine cook off for another couple of minutes.
Step 6
Add in the Canned Diced Tomatoes (3 1/2 cups) and Salt and Pepper (1 pinch) . Let it simmer and develop flavor.
Step 7
When the meatballs are done, transfer them into the pan of sauce and let it all simmer together for another 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Step 8
When the 30 minutes is pretty much up, get a large pot of water on the stove for the zoodles and bring it to a boil. Boil the Frozen Zucchini Spirals (1.5 lb) for just a minute or two until tender.
Step 9
Drain them and stir them into the sauce and meatballs for a minute.
Step 10
Take the pan off the heat and serve immediately in bowls with more parmesan and chopped basil on top if desired.
