Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup finely grated zucchini*, squeezed dry
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp each salt, pepper and minced garlic
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce

Preparation

1. Blend zucchini with Parmesan, oats, egg, Worcestershire, salt, pepper and garlic. Crumble in beef. Blend with hands to mix. Form into 16 meatballs.

2. Remove paddle from ActiFry pan. Add meatballs to pan in a single layer, leaving a large gap near the handle. Cook for 8 minutes.

3. Return paddle to pan. Cook for 4 minutes. (Spoon off accumulated fat if desired.) Add sauce and cook for 4 minutes.

4. Serve meatballs on hoagie buns and top with shredded mozzarella, or spoon over hot, cooked pasta tossed with additional warm sauce.

Cooking Tips: • *Grate a small zucchini on the fine side of a box grater; spread onto a double layer of paper towel and bring towel together to squeeze out all moisture • Replace beef with lean ground turkey or chicken • Warm up leftovers (if any) to pack into a thermos for a hearty hot lunch
