This recipe is one of my favorites for Sunday meal prep. These meatballs last me almost the whole week, and I can throw them with just about any dish for the perfect protein.
I am all about adding in extra vegetables wherever I can to really up the nutrition content of a recipe! The zucchini and red pepper in these meatballs add the perfect bulk and flavor. Feel free to sauté the veggies before adding them to soften them up!
