Eating My Way Through the Alphabet; Letter Z

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Food for Sharing: Zucchini Spirals over Meatballs! I am intrigued by the Spiralizer. Perhaps because it can take an ordinary vegetable and turn it into a gourmet attraction. And food that looks appealing is that much closer to an instant craving, in my opinion. By taking a shortcut with store bought meatballs and marinara sauce, this meal can be on the table in less than 30 minutes. Boom!
ZUCCHINI SPIRALS OVER MEATBALLS 
Ingredients:

1-2 zucchini, spiralized 

1-2 tablespoons olive oil

1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes 

1 tablespoon capers

1 pound home style meatballs, precooked

1 jar spaghetti sauce, any flavor
Instructions: 

Spiralize zucchini into a bowl. They will appear like pasta noodles. Discard spiral stems. In a medium skillet, heat olive oil. Reduce heat and toss zucchini spirals to coat. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Fold in capers. Heat no longer than 2-3 minutes. They should be slightly crunchy. In a large microwave-safe dish, combine meatballs and spaghetti sauce. Heat thoroughly. To serve, top meatballs and sauce with zucchini spirals.
