10 minutes
20 minutes


  • 1 pound 93 or 99% lean ground turkey
  • 3 to 4 medium zucchinis (or 8 oz package of Raley’s Zucchini Spirals)
  • 1 Raley’s large white egg, beaten
  • 1/2 onion minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup Raley’s breadcrumbs (or panko breadcrumbs)
  • 2 tablespoons roasted peppers, minced
  • 1- 23 oz jar Raley’s Mariana sauce
  • 1 (18-ounce) can Raley’s No Salt Added petite diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons each chopped chives and parsley, for garnish
  • Raley’s parmesan cheese, to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoon extra olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • sea salt, to taste
  • ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Always start with hand washing with soap and water.
  2. Rinse all fresh produce items under cold running water prior to prepping.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  4. Coat a parchment lined baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside.
  5. In a large bowl, combine turkey, egg, onion, garlic, parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, roasted peppers, salt and pepper.
  6. Roll mixture into 1–1½-inch meatballs and place on prepared baking sheet. Wash hands after handling raw turkey and eggs.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  8. While meatballs bake, prep zucchini into noodles by passing zucchini through a spiralizer on the thin noddle setting, cutting the zucchini noodles every 12-15 inches. (Quick tip use Raley’s precut zucchini noodles!)
  9. In a large skillet over medium heat, add oil, pepper flakes and Italian seasoning. Once hot, add zucchini noodles and sauté for 3 minutes or until just tender.
  10. Warm marinara sauce and petite diced tomatoes in a sauce pot. Remove meatballs from oven when cooked and place in saucepot.  Keep warm over low heat.                                                                           
  11. Serve zucchini noodles topped with meatballs, sauce and garnished with chives, parsley and additional parmesan cheese if desired.
