Servings: 5 servings
- 2 cups packed grated zucchini about 2 large zucchini
- ¾ cup panko breadcrumbs
- ¼ cup grated mozzarella cheese
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 eggs
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- marinara sauce and whole wheat pasta for serving
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F with a rack in the upper third of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the grated zucchini in a clean kitchen towel. Wrap up and squeeze out the excess moisture over a bowl or sink.
Transfer zucchini to a large bowl. Add the panko breadcrumbs, mozzarella, Parmesan, eggs, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir with a fork until well combined. Using your hands, shape the mixture into 1 ½-inch balls and place on the parchment-lined baking sheet. (Rather than rolling, I find that gently squeezing the mixture into a ball shape works best.)
Bake for 14-16 minutes, until lightly golden on top. Serve with marinara sauce and whole wheat pasta, if desired.
