Turkey zucchini healthy (meatballs)

Lol I can't call turkey or chicken balls meatballs because they are poultry not meat so this is a little awkward!!  Such a dilemma . Haha

Playing with food today so this was a way to get some veggies in hubby and I.  They are wonderful and you can hardly tell there is zucchini in them so you can fool the kiddo's while getting them some healthy food.  Enjoy!

1 lb. ground turkey
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs 
1 cup Pecorino Romano grated cheese
1 egg slightly beaten
1 tsp. dried parsley
1 cup shredded zucchini patted dry
Chicken broth

Mix first 7 ingredients by hand. Add zucchini and a little chicken broth. Mix together until all ingredients are incorporated.  Roll into 1/2 inch size balls or larger.

Bake in 400 degree oven until slightly browned .  You can eat them as is or add to your favorite Marinara sauce!  Yummy!!
